At just 2.5 x 2.3 x 1.4 inches, the Cube is Plugable's smallest docking station on the market. Extend the connectivity and usability of your USB-C system with the mobile UD-CUBE that fits in the palm of your hand. Drive an external HDMI display while having access to three USB ports for your USB peripherals such as a mouse and keyboard and a wired gigabit Ethernet connection.
The display functionality of the UD-CUBE dock is powered by one of USB 3.1 ’s most exciting new features: support for Alternate Mode (Alt Mode) video. Alternate Modes allow certain non-USB data and protocols (such as native video) to be sent over a USB-C cable, so you don’t need a separate video cable running to your system. Instead, the UD-CUBE enables you to connect your HDMI display directly to the dock and enjoy native level display performances up to the host system’s graphics capabilities. Tiny but Mighty The Cube is smaller than most cellphones and can save valuable deskspace by eliminating clutter. With the Cube, Plugable helps users streamline their workspaces and become more efficient and productive by getting their ports back in a compact and convenient dock. Vast Multi-Connectivity The Cube provides users the ability to connect a single 4K HDMI display, one USB 3.0 port, two USB 2.0 ports for connecting peripherals such as a keyboard and mouse, and a wired gigabit Ethernet connection, all through a single USB-C cable. Specifications Supported Resolutions The HDMI port supports a maximum resolution of 3840x2160@30Hz (4K@30Hz) as outlined in the HDMI 1.4 specification. 2560x1440 (1440p), 1920x1080 (1080p) and lower resolutions will display at 60Hz. System Requirements The system must have a USB-C 3.1 Gen 1 / Gen 2 port that supports USB-C DisplayPort Alternate Mode (Alt Mode).
Alternatively, a system with a Thunderbolt 3 port is also compatible. Not a Charging Dock Please note that the UD-CUBE will not charge your connected host laptop. Performance USB-C Alternate Mode (Alt Mode) allows for a direct pipeline to the host graphics processor (GPU) in your system. As a result, the connected HDMI monitor will perform as a natively attached display, up to the system's GPU capabilities. Compatibility The UD-CUBE is compatible with Windows, MacOS, and ChromeOS computers with a USB-C 3.1 Gen 1 / Gen 2 port that supports USB-C DisplayPort Alt Mode.
