One Stop Debuts MaxExpress Industrial PCI Express Computer Products

9/27/2004 - One Stop Systems announces the introduction of its MaxExpressTM product line based on PCI ExpressTM technology. The MaxExpressTM product line includes a complete range of industrial-grade computer products implementing PCI-SIGTM, PICMG(R) and VITA standards being released to the industrial computer markets. PCI Express, as implemented in the MaxExpressTM product line, with x16 slots has maximum throughput of 8 Gigabytes per second; far outpacing any industrial bus speed to date.

“One Stop Systems is excited to be first to market with an extensive line of PCI ExpressTM products specifically geared toward industrial-grade applications,” said Steve Cooper, President and CEO. “The MaxExpressTM product family, which is a combination of our standardization efforts and world-class engineering, will continue to grow as subsequent waves of products are released by One Stop Systems. Our leadership role in the standardization of PCI Express implementations in industrial-grade computer form factors, combined with our extensive product customization skills provide our customers with the competitive advantage they need to excel in their respective markets.”

MaxExpressTM products pending distribution include PICMG 1.3 passive backplane form factor systems, PICMG 3U & 6U CompactPCI Express form factor single board computers and systems, ruggedized motherboard systems, I/O expansion chassis and a full range of accessories to squeeze the maximum benefit from the 8 Gigabytes of bandwidth available in PCI Express x16.

Standardizing Industrial PCI ExpressTM
One Stop Systems is a leader of the PCI Express standardization in the industrial computer market. One Stop Systems has brought their experience and expertise from the PCI-SIGTM, owners of the PCI ExpressTM Base Specification 1.0a, to the PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturer’s Group (PICMG) where Steve Cooper, President of One Stop Systems, has organized and provided key leadership in the standardization effort. One Stop Systems holds an officer or key member position on the PICMG 1.3, PICMG EXP, PICMG XMC/VITA 42, PICMG AMC and PICMG PCI Express Marketing committees.

Expanding the Limits of Industrial Computing
One Stop Systems’ MaxExpressTM I/O Expansion products boast maximum PCI Express I/O board counts in excess of 150 boards per host system without the requirement for expensive reflective memory or slower bridging products. The overwhelming leap in technology that MaxExpressTM PCI ExpressTM products bring to the industrial grade computer market unleashes the power of the extreme bandwidth needs of converged communications, broadcast and military applications.

“While the One Stop Systems MaxExpressTM product line is a monumental leap in hardware technology, the software compatibility features inherent in PCI Express to legacy PCI will provide little to no impact to customer developed software,” said Steve Cooper. “In addition, the Quality of Service (QoS) features built-in to the PCI Express specification provide our customers with increased functionality.”

Products in the One Stop Systems MaxExpressTM product are available for customer shipments immediately, with wave after wave of MaxExpressTM products to follow into the 1st half of 2005 and beyond. All MaxExpressTM products are also included in the One Stop Systems customization program for immediate design.
