PC CardBus to FireWire 800 IEEE 1394A/B Combo 2+1 Port

CardBus FireWire 800 The PC CardBus to FireWire® 800 IEEE 1394A/B Combo card provides CardBus equipped laptops with high performance FireWire® 800 capabilities. The card provides two 9-pin FireWire® 800 and one 6-pin FireWire® 400 connectors for connections to various FireWire® devices. FireWire® 800 mode is supported by Mac OS X and Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003. Many earlier operating systems can utilize the 400 port. Due to PCI bandwidth limitations on many laptops CardBus FireWire® 800 host adapters typically achieve speeds much better than FireWire® 400, but not reaching the full 800Mb/s (100MB/s) of the IEEE 1394B specification. The card features a ruggedized form factor in which the ports are integrated via the extended card form factor.
