• FW-IDE02F support one IDE (ATA/ATAPI) device.

FW-IDE02F is a FireWire (IEEE 1394a) to IDE (ATA/ATAPI) bridge board featuring Oxford OXFW911plus FireWire (IEEE 1394a) to IDE (ATA/ATAPI) Bridge Controller.

FW-IDE02F 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 be connected to FireWire (IEEE 1394a) serial bus in a plug-and-play fashion.

Users can easily hot-swap FireWire (IEEE 1394a) drive without interrupting the current operation.

FW-IDE02F provides the perfect solution for data backup and transferring of data between computers using IDE (ATA/ATAPI) devices.
