FWB-PCI02 Host Adapter

FWB-PCI02 Host Adapter

2-port OHCI 1.1 Compliant IEEE-1394b to PCI Host Adapter

FWB-PCI02 is designed to meet the demanding requirements of today’s 1394 bus architecture. Its capability of performing 800M bits/s transfer speed enables the throughput and bandwidth to move data efficiently and quickly between the PCI and 1394 buses. FWB-PCI02 also provides outstanding ultra-low power operation and intelligent power management capabilities.

FWB-PCI02’s improved throughput and increased bandwidth make it ideal for today’s high-end PCs. It opens the door for the development of S800 RAID- and SAN-based peripherals. The data transfer rates of FWB-PCI02 are 100Mbits/s, 200Mbit/s, 400Mbits/s, & 800Mbits/s.
