1394 Interface Card - FireAdapter PCIe082

1394 PCIe S800 Optical

The PCIe082 is an innovative interface design that addresses the need for 800Mbps data transfer rates over multiple bus interfaces. It allows for one standard 1394 copper as well as two glass optical fiber (GOF) connections. These Fiber connections support both the S800 transmission rates as well as long-haul distances (up to 100m) over LC Duplex 50/125um multi-modes optical cables.

And it uses the ever so popular PCIe interface standard and is fully OHCI compliant. The products accommodate off-the-shelf IEEE-1394 OHCI drivers from WindowsTM & Linux-based operating systems. No driver modification/installation is required.

For a more optimized API and/or operating systems without built-in support we recommend to use DapTechnology's FireStack. FireStack currently supports WindowsTM, Linux, VxWorks, IRIX and QNX. Please contact DapTechnology directly for operating systems not currently supported.

1394 PCIe S800 Optical software

Standard OHCI Link Layers and FireStack

FireStack® is DapTechnology’s homegrown 1394 software stack. Initially developed in conjunction with the company’s 1394 Link Layer Controller FireLink®, the product was architectured from ground up in order to support the advanced features of the FireLink® IP (Basic and Extended) solution. Since then additional mechanisms have been added to FireStack® to enable support for generic OHCI compliant Link layers.

FireStack® is an alternative to using general purpose SW implementations with standard OHCI I/O interfaces as it offers a more deterministic approach. Modern plug & play solutions are not always recommended for use in enclosed systems since they typically add undesired bus traffic, latencies, etc... The ability to customize FireStack® modules allows focusing on the task requirements without unwanted system, traffic and data overhead.
