About FireWire® (IEEE 1394, iLINK)

FireWire logo IEEE 1394 (aka. FireWire and iLINK) is a high-bandwidth isochronous (real-time) interface for computers, peripherals, and consumer electronics products such as camcorders, VCRs, printers, PCs, TVs, and digital cameras. With IEEE 1394-compatible products and systems, users can transfer video or still images from a camera or camcorder to a printer, PC, or television, with no image degradation.

Additionally, IEEE 1394 will allow connections for various devices that require high-bandwidth transfer including mass storage devices. IEEE 1394 allows connections of up to 63 devices is "hot pluggable" and easy to use. FireWire® is considered a complimentary technology to Universal Serial Bus, so expect to see IEEE 1394 wherever bandwidth requirements exceed those USB's capabilities. Synchrotech intends to provide its customers with the best these exciting new technologies offer.
