IEEE-1394b Module Adds Zip To PC/104-Plus Embedded Systems

Enabling high-speed data transfers, the Fast1394 PC/104-Plus controller module supports the advanced features of the IEEE-1394b bus with data rates of up to 800 Mb/s over three plug-and-play bilingual cable ports galvanically isolated between the transceiver and link controller. Fully compliant with the Open Host Controller Interface (OHCI) v1.1 specification, this rugged card is built with link layer and physical controllers that integrate intelligent power management capabilities, deep transmit and receive FIFOs to buffer 1394 data, and enhancements to better support digital video (DV) and MPEG data stream reception and transmission. In addition, an onboard auxiliary power connector provides an extra input from the system power supply to the 1394b connectors and is capable of supplying up to 45W of power to external peripherals via a 1394 cable. The card also supports hot pluggable connections and provides automatic detection and configuration for up to 63 devices. The Fast1394 requires a single 5V power supply and comes in standard (0°C to +70°C) and extended temperature versions (-40°C to +85°C). Price is $192 each/100. PARVUS CORP., Salt Lake City, UT.
