This 3 Port PCI Express FireWire adapter card can be installed in a PCI
Express slot to add two IEEE1394b (FireWire 800 - 9 pin) ports and one
IEEE1394a (FireWire 400 - 6 pin) port, providing broad compatibility with a
wide range of FireWire devices (e.g. DV camcorders, external hard drives,
digital cameras, etc.).

The 2b, 1a card features a native (single chip)
PCI Express chipset - resulting in faster, more reliable and cost effective
performance than expansion cards that utilize a "bridge" chip.

    • Two 9-pin FireWire 800 ports, each with transfer rates up to 800Mbps
    • One 6-pin FireWire 400 port, each with transfer rates up to 400Mbps
    • Built with a native PCI Express chipset, no bridge chip
    • Includes low profile/half-height installation bracket
    • Internal power connector for high powered FireWire devices
    • Compliant with IEEE 1394b and backwards compatible with IEEE 1394a - 2000 as well as 1394-1995 standards
    • Plug-and-Play and hot-swap compatible

    • Add a high speed FireWire port to a desktop without any FireWire ports
    • Connect a digital camera to a desktop with a PCI Express slot to download photos and video
    • Connect a high-speed external hard drive to a PCI Express-enabled system
