- 1394 Firewire
With the advantages of true peer-to-peer connectivity and high efficiency rates, IEEE 1394 (FireWire) is a widely adopted interface. Currently, 1394 is used in mass-market computer, entertainment, and professional products, as well as in a wide range of specialty applications such as music, defense, aerospace, industry, and robotics. There have been over one billion 1394 ports shipped with PCs and peripherals worldwide.
As one of the first companies to receive the 1394a cable compliance logo, Newnex has been a leading developer of the 1394 standard, not only authoring the 1394a cable and connector compliance specifications but also contributing many 1394 white papers and other technical documents. Newnex continues to lead the 1394 market in long haul repeaters through patented technologies and innovative solutions. The company has successfully introduced the world's first 1394b optical repeater, the FireNEX800™. Newnex is the only company in the world with solutions to extend 1394 signals over long distances for all technically viable media such as optical fiber, plastic fiber, category cables and coax cables.
S1600 1394b products are now on the market. S1600 refers to a data transfer rate of 1,600 Mbps, which is twice as fast as S800, the previous top speed for 1394. Current high quality 1394b Newnex cables and connectors are compatible with S1600 products.
