FireWire Chips Write Fast, Consume Less Power

Claiming high write performance at 17% less power over previous generations, three additions to the LSI TrueFIRE family of IEEE 1394 FireWire devices include the FW643E host controller that provides connectivity from a PCI Express bus to a 1394B interface at 800 Mb/s. The LSI FW843 1394B 800 Mb/s PHY connects to high-speed peripherals at the same transfer rate while the LSI FW533 provides 1394A connectivity at 400 Mb/s for lower-cost, less performance-intensive applications. The FW643E and FW533E are shipping now in production quantities. The FW843 is sampling now, with production expected to ramp in the first quarter of 2009.
