One Stop Systems Introduces the picoCUBE Expansion Enclosures

Supports half-height, half-length PCIe card

New Thunderbolt2 Option Card available

ESCONDIDO, California -- One Stop Systems, Inc. (OSS), the leader in PCI Express (PCIe) expansion solutions, introduces the picoCUBE (pCUBE), the latest member of the CUBE line of expansion enclosures.  This new acrylic enclosure supports one PCIe x8 3.0 half-height, half-length expansion card up to 6.5" long. It can be supplied with either a PCIe x1, x4, or x8 cable adapter or Thunderbolt 2 Option Card and includes a 36W external power supply. It's ideal for Mac Pro users who just need to add a single card like a Black Magic Mini Recorder card to their system. This light weight, whisper-quiet appliance offers tremendous performance gains to a laptop or workstation by simply attaching to a computer through a Thunderbolt or PCIe high-speed connection. The pCUBE is especially ideal for noise-sensitive environments and can be used with both Mac and PC systems with comparable efficiency.

The CUBE expansion enclosures support one to eight PCIe cards, offering the widest variety of slots, power, and connectivity options available on the market today. These enclosures are Thunderbolt-ready to plug into the new Mac Pro, providing access to pro audio, video capture and processing and general IO cards as well as numerous storage devices.  Lightweight and easy to use, they make ideal companions to Apple laptops for many applications including on-set or near-set video applications, speeding up workflow. The CUBE enclosures are also priced lower than most competitive products.

"The picoCUBE adds yet another option for customers who want to add a single PCIe card to their system," said Steve Cooper, OSS CEO.  This smaller enclosure is ideal for applications in noise-sensitive environments where the operator needs to add a PCIe card to a laptop adding additional IO like Ethernet ports or functionality like an SDI and HDMI connectors to an editing card. It also adds flexibility to a desktop PC or workstation needing an easily removable IO card."

The picoCUBE expansion enclosure is available in a variety of connectivity options with prices from $495 for the pCUBE with PCIe x1 2.0 (OSS-PCIe-ENCL-EXP-pCUBE-1-x1) connection or $595 with the Thunderbolt 2 Option Card (OSS-TB2-ENCL-EXP-pCUBE-1).  All products are available immediately on
