One Stop Systems Ships First PCIe x8 Gen 3 Adapters


One Stop Systems, Inc. (OSS), a leader in PCI Express (PCIe) over cable expansion and custom computing solutions announced today that it has shipped its first PCIe x8 Gen 3 expansion adapters. The new card mounts flat in a small form factor enclosure and contains a PCIe x16 mechanical slot. This makes it an ideal solution for 1U disk arrays requiring a single RAID card. This is universal adapter that can mount into a limited height space.

"OSS works closely with our customers to design products that meet their specific requirements", said Steve Cooper, CEO. "OSS provides OEMs with the latest technology products, saving the OEM the unnecessary overhead of designing and manufacturing the product thereby allowing them to get their products to market more quickly and efficiently. OSS has gained a relationship with many of our OEMs that allows us to continue to provide next generation products over time. Benefitting from our technologic leadership in PCIe over cable products, OSS is often approached by OEMs to develop new products that meet their requirements. We encourage OEMs to request new products that we don't necessarily have on our website. OEMs are often surprised by our low NRE (non-recurring engineering cost) and low minimum purchases."

The PCIe x8 Gen 3 embedded cable adapter (OSS-PCIe-ECA-x8-G3) operates at data transfer speeds up to 64Gb/s and lists for $525 per unit. The card is immediately available and pricing for OEM quantities is available upon request.
