IEEE 1394 (FireWire) for Industrial Cameras

March 17, 2010
IEEE 1394 is an interface standard dedicated to applications such as industrial automation where high-speed, time critical, reliable data transmission is required. FireWire is a serial bus interface standard that specifies cost-effective cabling and is simple in setup and application.
FireWire has become one of the most accepted interface technologies for digital imaging, especially in machine vision, medical imaging, and intelligent traffic systems. More than 10 percent of all machine vision cameras are equipped with FireWire, and FireWire technology has been the most successful interface technology in the industrial camera market over the last few years.Download white paper
