2-port (external) OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394a (FireWire) to PCI Express x1 Host Card featuring Ti XIO2200 IEEE 1394 Host Controller (Low Profile PCI Form Factor)

FW-PCIE02|2-port (external) OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394a (FireWire) to PCI Express x1 Host Card featuring Ti XIO2200 IEEE 1394 Host Controller (Low Profile PCI Form Factor)
The FW-PCIE02 is a 2-port FireWire (IEEE 1394a) to PCI Express Host Adapter featuring Texas Instruments XIO2200A controller.

The Texas Instruments XIO2200A is a single-function PCI Express to PCI local bus translation bridge where the PCI bus interface is internally connected to a 1394a-2000 open host controller link-layer controller with a two-port 1394a PHY. This solution provides full PCI Express and 1394a functionality and performance.
