FWBU2-IDE02 is a FireWire 800 (IEEE 1394b) & USB 2.0 ComBo to
IDE (ATA/ATAPI) bridge board featuring Oxford OXUF-922L FireWire 800 (IEEE
1394b) & USB 2.0 ComBo to IDE (ATA/ATAPI) Bridge Controller and Ti's
new IEEE 1394b 800Mbps PHY (TSB81BA3) .
FWBU2-IDE02 is ideally suited for tailgate interface applications for
removable-media drives CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, DVD-RAM, tape drive,
and hard disk drive. It allows IDE drive (Master or Slave) to connect
to FireWire 800 (IEEE 1394b) serial bus in a plug-and-play fashion. Both
ATA and ATAPI devices are supported using the same firmware.
FWBU2-IDE02 allows users to easily hot-swap IDE drive without interrupting
the current operation. FWBU2-IDE02 provides the perfect solution for data
backup and transfering of data between computers using IDE (ATA/ATAPI)
End users can replace the slow & expensive SCSI device with affordable
& fast FWBU2-IDE02. It also provides peripheral vendors a unique opportunity
to continue the advantage of ATA/ATAPI while presenting FWBU2-IDE02 into
the rapidly expanding FireWire800 (IEEE 1394b) & USB 2.0 ComBo markets.
