Parvus to Release 3-Port PC/104-Plus FireWire (IEEE-1394b) Host Controller Module for Embedded Computer Systems

Aug 04, 2004

SALT LAKE CITY � August 4, 2004 � Parvus� Corp. today announced the anticipated release of its Fast1394� card, a 3-port IEEE-1394b controller module designed for high-speed data acquisition across the FireWire� bus for audio, video and storage peripherals in embedded computer systems. This PC/104-Plus form-factor card supports the advanced features of the new high performance IEEE-1394b (2002) serial bus with data transfer rates of up to 800Mbits/s over three (3) plug-and-play bilingual cable ports galvanically isolated between the transceiver and link controller.

While remaining fully backwards compatibility with earlier IEEE-1394a and IEEE-1394 devices, the Fast1394 is fully compliant with the Open Host Controller Interface (OHCI) v1.1 specification and is built with reliable link layer and physical controllers, which integrate intelligent power management capabilities, deep transmit and receive FIFOs (to buffer 1394 data), as well as enhancements to better support digital video (DV) and MPEG data stream reception and transmission.

Supporting hot pluggable connections, the Fast1394 card provides automatic detection and configuration. It has an onboard auxiliary power connector for extra power input from the system power supply to the 1394b connectors and is capable of supplying up to 45 watts of power to external peripherals via a 1394 cable. The unit requires a single 5V power supply and comes in standard (0�C to +70�C) and extended temperature versions (-40�C to +85�C).

When combined with a Parvus PC/104-Plus CPU module, the Fast1394 provides OEMs and system integrators with a powerful, complete computing solution designed for applications that take advantage of IEEE-1394b technology to rapidly transfer high levels of data. Potential applications include real-time industrial control and manufacturing automation, digital video and multimedia data acquisition, portable/mobile data storage, medical/industrial imaging, in-vehicle electronics networking, simulation, robotics, and aviation computing systems, among others.
