An Ace Interface

FireWire has been around for quite some time. The IEEE 1394 interface was first developed in the late 1980s and early 1990s by Apple as a replacement for parallel connections. They quickly nicknamed it FireWire, because they seem to have a particular fondness for the elements. They can also be found under a variety of names including IEEE 1394, FireWire, iLink, and DV. Today, they are a popular alternative to USB and can be found on many computers- not just Macs- as well as hard drives, CD burners, and digital cameras. One of the advantages over USB is FireWire doesn’t require the use of a computer as a middleman. Each FireWire device is uniquely capable of communicating directly with another.

Change It, Don’t Exchange It

The FireWire interface has gone through a series of advancements and enhancements over the years, and this is reflected in the plugs. Ports and cables can be found for the 4-pin, 6-pin, and 9-pin varieties. Although the cables can function interchangeably, they are also completely different shapes and sizes. Physics gets in the way when you attempt to connect 6-pin and 4-pin females, so do you have to buy a new cord? Absolutely not! FireFold’s FW-6M4M-ADPT FireWire adapter can couple one 6-pin female to a 4-pin jack.

This 6-pin male to 4-pin male adapter can be used with Windows or Mac OS platforms as well as with any non-bus powered device. The nature of FireWire only allows you to experience the speeds of the lowest rated connection, but that still means a data transfer rate of up to 400Mbps. This pocket-sized adapter is small and light for use on the go. Sturdy metal contacts ensure you get a flawless connection, and the professional-grade molded plastic body has ridges to increase grip when plugging or unplugging it. With a lifetime warranty, you can expect this adapter to perform perfectly for as long as you own it.
