NAME


ieee1394, firewire, 1394 - illumos IEEE-1394 Architecture

DESCRIPTION


IEEE-1394 provides a means for interconnecting devices in computer and
home entertainment systems. (The IEEE-1394 architecture is also known as
Firewire, an Apple Computer trademark, and i.Link, a Sony trademark). The
most common IEEE-1394 devices are digital camcorders, mass-storage
devices and cameras (including webcam-type devices). For more information
on IEEE-1394, refer to the 1394 Trade Association website at
http://www.1394ta.org.


The illumos IEEE-1394 architecture supports up to 63 hot-pluggable
IEEE-1394 devices per IEEE-1394 bus. The maximum data transfer rate is
400 Mbits, depending on the capabilities of the attached device.


The illumos IEEE-1394 architecture supports devices implementing a number
of different specifications. The basic behavior of the IEEE-1394 bus is
described in the IEEE 1394-1995 and IEEE 1394a-2000 specifications.


IEEE-1394 host controllers implementing the 1394 Open Host Controller
Interface specification are supported. Camcorders implementing the IEC
61883 and 1394 Trade Association AV/C specifications are supported. Mass-
storage devices implementing the ANSI SBP-2 specification are supported.
Digital cameras implementing the 1394 Trade Association 1394-based
Digital Camera (IIDC) specification are supported.

NOTES


Booting from IEEE-1394 mass-storage devices is not supported, but may be
possible if supported by the BIOS of the computer system.
