Austin, Texas-based FirewireDirect.com Inc. has released its FireWire 800 CardBus/PCMCIA adapter for Type-II slots. The new FireWire 800/1394b CardBus Adapter offers two ports, a 9-pin FireWire 800 port to connect new 800Mbps FireWire 1394b devices and an independent legacy 6-pin port for 400Mbps FireWire products.

The separate legacy and 800Mbps ports are capable of supporting up to 63 devices and with no negative performance impact on the newer, faster FireWire devices while maintaining compatibility with existing cables; it also employs Texas Instruments' OHCI-Lynx chipset.

The new card offers speeds of up to 800 Mbps (twice as fast as the existing FireWire standard), as well as enhancements to data integrity.

Daniel Jackson, FirewireDirect’s CTO, said, “FireWire is already the technology of choice for high-speed peripherals. This new CardBus brings this technology to a more portable format.”

Now available, interested users should visit www.firewiredirect.com for more information.
