 Low cost cable assembly for high speed serial bus
A low-cost cable assembly from GTK is now available to support the IEEE 1394 interface standard otherwise known as FireWire, or i.link. The standard, a high-speed serial bus which delivers data transfer rates up to 400 Mbits/s, is ubiquitous on new PCs for connection to high speed peripherals and is critical for video and audio streaming over peer-to-peer networks.
GTK’s IEEE1394 cable assemblies include 4- to 4-, 4- to 6- and 6- to 6-way cable connectors, with the 4-pin interconnect incorporating two separately shielded twisted-pair transmission lines. Two power conductors - carrying 1.5A at up to 40V - are added by the 6-pin interconnect for an isolated remote device. More, end connectors have been asymmetrically designed to ensure correct connection, and are supplied with retention catch on demand.

Devices are RoHS-compliant and supplied in a wide range of cable lengths and colours, with the possibility of colour-coded end and PCB connectors. Parts are suitable for use on PC motherboards as well as set-top boxes, games consoles, camcorders, and digital TVs.
