The PEX1394A2V 2-Port PCI Express FireWire Card lets you add two
native FireWire 400 ports to your desktop PC, allowing you to
connect IEEE 1394A FireWire devices such as digital cameras,
external hard drives, DV camcorders, and more.
When two devices are simultaneously connected, this PCIe FireWire
adapter reduces performance bottlenecks by offering support for data
transfer rates up to 400Mbps to each port. The FireWire card
employs dual-bus architecture to provide the maximum bandwidth to
each individually connected device, rather than sharing the
bandwidth across multiple ports.
An ideal solution for transferring large volumes of data at once,
the FireWire card also integrates a native PCIe single chipset
design. With no secondary bridge chipset, your FireWire devices
communicate quicker with your PC to ensure seamless operation of
your connected peripherals.
For broad compatibility, the FireWire card is natively supported in
Windows® with no additional drivers required, is equipped with a
standard profile bracket, and includes a low-profile/half-height
bracket for installation in small form-factor computers.
