• The µCUBE3 and CUBE2 support five PCIe cards and The CUBE3 supports eight PCIe Gen3 cards
• PCIe and Thunderbolt connection options are available
Escondido, CA - July 2, 2015 - One Stop Systems (OSS), a leading provider of PCI Express (PCIe) and Thunderbolt expansion products announces even greater variety in the CUBE line of expansion enclosures by introducing the all-metal CUBE chassis. OSS, with already the largest variety of slots, power choices, and card sizes adds the option of a rugged, all-steel chassis to its CUBE line of enclosures. The µCUBE3, CUBE2 and CUBE3, all with internal power supplies are now available in a sleek metal chassis. These chassis are ideal for mobile applications where ruggedness is required and they all contain the same electronics as the hard plastic models. All models connect to a PC or Mac through a high speed PCIe cable. You can choose from a number of PCIe expansion options for all CUBE models including PCIe x1, x4, x8, and x16 connections along with the latest Gen3 x8 and x16 options. The CUBE2 can also connect to a Thunderbolt-enabled computer through a Thunderbolt cable. The appropriate cable is always provided with an OSS expansion product.
The µCUBE3 and the CUBE2 both support up to five PCIe x4 cards with the µCUBE3 supporting short cards up to 9.5” long and the CUBE2 supporting full-length cards up to 13.25” long. The CUBE3 supports up to eight full-height, full-length single-wide or four double-wide cards. The heftier ruggedness of the new enclosures lends itself to mobile applications. Each model includes internal power supplies with sufficient power to support multiple I/O and specialized application cards. Simply install the PCIe adapter card in your computer and attach the PCIe or Thunderbolt cable. The CUBE enclosure boots when the computer is turned on.
“The CUBE expansion enclosures have found wide acceptance in design and test applications. It provides an ideal platform for software designers and test engineers designing new PCIe cards,” said Steve Cooper, OSS CEO. “But many applications require more rugged units that are moved to multiple locations and can withstand continual handling. Some of these applications have reported that while they prefer OSS electronics above competitive brands, they need a more rugged enclosure. Our new all-steel enclosures answer these requests while keeping the same leading-edge electronics as their hard plastic counterparts and retaining the same easy-to-use design. OSS also provides a wide variety of PCIe connection options as well as Thunderbolt.”
The 5-slot metal µCUBE3 starts at $1,095, the CUBE2 starts at $1,395 and the 8-slot CUBE3 with PCIe Gen3 expansion starts at $2,195. All models are available with your order. All PCIe and Thunderbolt expansion products can be ordered direct from OSS at www.maxexpansion.com.
