One Stop Systems Introduces The CUBE Family
of Desktop Expansion Enclosures

  • Thunderbolt™ or PCIe connectivity
  • Light-weight, whisper-quiet, high-speed expansion

ESCONDIDO, California- January 2, 2013 – One Stop Systems, Inc. (OSS), the leader in PCI Express (PCIe) expansion products and custom computing solutions, introduces The CUBE, the latest in desktop expansion enclosures. This light weight, whisper-quiet appliance offers tremendous performance gains to a laptop or workstation by simply attaching The CUBE to the computer through either Thunderbolt or PCIe high-speed connection. Flexible and versatile, The CUBE offers a variety of sizes to accommodate a number of PCIe cards that will create the desired system. By adding a video editing card and a Flash high speed memory card to The CUBE you can instantly turn your laptop into a video editing machine. The light-weight enclosure ensures mobility and the whisper-quiet cooling fans make it suitable for any noise-sensitive environment. The CUBE can be used with both MAC and PC systems with comparable efficiency.

The CUBE family includes The µCUBE, µCUBE2, and µCUBE3 supporting PCIe short cards and The CUBE, CUBE2, and CUBE3 supporting full-length PCIe cards. The most compact of the family, the µCUBE, supports one PCIe short card, the µCUBE2 supports up to three short cards and the µCUBE3 supports up to five short cards.  In addition, the µCUBE is offered in a window version designed especially for board vendors that want to show their boards in operation.

The CUBE enclosures support full length PCIe cards and are especially useful for adding GPUs to your system. The CUBE supports two single-wide or one double-wide card, The CUBE2 supports up to five cards and The CUBE3 supports up to eight single-wide cards or four double-wide cards. All are equipped with power sources and cooling sufficient for the most demanding cards.

“OSS leads the market in producing PCIe rackmount expansion products like the 1U, 2U, and 3U enclosures, supporting up to sixteen high-end I/O boards,” says Steve Cooper, CEO. “Now we have taken our expertise in designing and manufacturing these products and created a new line of desktop expansion enclosures. These enclosures are designed specifically for commercial applications that require lightweight and noiseless systems that can easily and economically increase the functionality and performance of their laptops and workstations, saving the user from having to purchase new computing systems that provide these same advantages. The variety of sizes, slot counts, power supplies, cooling, and connectivity options make these truly first-of-their-kind expansion systems. You can easily install the card of your choice in The CUBE and create a custom appliance for any application task. Install a Flash memory card in the mCUBE to create the ideal laptop companion for multimedia designers or any user that needs mobility and additional fast storage. The added advantage of using either Thunderbolt or PCIe connectivity allows the user a choice of high speed connections. Some applications may require the high speed connection of PCI Express, providing up to 128Gb/s data transfers with a PCIe x16 connection. Other applications may require the Display Port option that a Thunderbolt connection provides. Either way The CUBE is simple, reliable, and cost-effective.”

The CUBE family of expansion enclosures are available in a variety of prices. The µCUBE with Thunderbolt lists for USD$395 and with PCIe starting at $375 for x1. The µCUBE2 with Thunderbolt lists for USD$695 and with PCIe starting at $675 for x1.The µCUBE3 with Thunderbolt lists for USD$1,250 and with PCIe starting at $775 for x1.
