At CES 2018, Kingston will its family of solid-state drives, like the upcoming DCU1000, encrypted USB Flash drives, the Nucleum 7-in-1 Type-C media hub for MacBooks as well as mobile and embedded solutions.
The Nucleum is a 7-in-1 Type C USB hub designed for newer MacBooks as it provides extra USB-C and USB-A ports as well as HDMI and SD/microSD card slots.
Featuring multiple ports, the hub is built to handle all of the accessories consumers have such as mice, keyboards and even a second monitor. Nucleum users can power up a MacBook while also running an external hard drive and charging an iPhone simultaneously.
Kingston says that the Electromagnetic interference (EMI) on Nucleum is mitigated due to its shielding and unique port placement. Shielding was placed on the USB ports and the layout for both USB Type A and C are opposite each other instead of side by side.
Nucleum is available in the United States now and will expand to the United Kingdom and select countries in the Asia-Pacific region later in Q1. It is backed by a two-year warranty.
