What is FireWire?
FireWire is Apple Inc.'s brand name for the IEEE 1394 interface; the offical name for the standard and is also known as i.LINK (Sony's name). You have
probably heard the term FireWire if you have any interest in digital video. FireWire is a way to connect different pieces of equipment so they can easily and
quickly share information.
Originally created by Apple and standardized in 1995 as the specification IEEE 1394 High Performance Serial Bus, FireWire is very similar to Universal
Serial Bus (USB). The designers of FireWire had several particular goals in mind when they created the standard:
Fast transfer of data
Ability to put lots of devices on the bus
Ease of use
Provision of power through the cable
Low cabling cost
Low implementation cost
