DapTechnology's 1394 and AS5643 IP Core solutions are based on the need for a reliable data capture, verification and analysis engine developed for the FireSpy® product line. This solution has first been shipped on all of DapTechnology's analyzers, has been tested over and over again. It has been a great starting point for FireLink®.
FireGate was developed because of the need for faster bus speeds. Off-the-shelf silicon has maxed out at S800, yet the imaging industry required speeds of S1600 and S3200. For many years DapTechnology has been the only vendor of such high speeds.
In recent years the Aerospace industry challenged the IEEE-1394 technology with some unique requirements which can be addressed with IP approaches.
