IO Libraries support of IEEE 1394 CardBus/PCMCIA Cards
Last change of this page: February 1, 2005.
Windows 98 SE/Me/2000/XP have built-in support for IEEE 1394, enabling us to support several IEEE 1394 CardBus/PCMCIA Cards. To ensure functionality of these cards with Agilent IO software, we have tested specific IEEE 1394 CardBus/PCMCIA cards with recent releases of the E2094 Agilent IO Libraries.
NOTE: IEEE 1394 CardBus/PCMCIA cards are not supported on Windows 95 or NT 4.0.
IEEE 1394 CardBus/PCMCIA Cards with the TI 1394 chipset:
The following cards have been tested and are supported with the J.01.01 (or later) IO Libraries:
- SIIG 1394 FireWire, Model # NN-PCM012 (Note: This card is not compatible with HP OmniBook 4150A laptop computers. This card is compatible with HP OmniBook 4150B laptop computers).
- SIIG 1394 2 Port Cardbus, Model # NN2627, Part # NN-PC2012
- VST Technologies FireWire CardBus Card, Model # FWCBC (Note: VST Technologies has been acquired by SmartDisk Corp. This card is available from SmartDisk and several retailers; it is still labeled as a VST product).
- Evergreen Technologies fireLINE CardBus/PCMCIA Card, Model # 90-FLCB-AAO
We expect other TI-based chipset CardBus/PCMCIA Cards to work, but we cannot support them without official testing and qualification.
IEEE 1394 CardBus/PCMCIA Cards with the NEC 1394 chipset:
The following cards have been tested and are supported with the J.01.02 (or later) IO Libraries:
- OrangeMicro OrangeLink FireWire CardBus PC Card, Model # 70HTL00040
- RATOC Systems IEEE1394 CardBus PC Card, Model # CBFW1/CBFW1U
- Adaptec Fireconnect for Notebooks, Model # 2053200
Note that the NEC-based chipset currently has a smaller buffer size that will impact performance.
Other chipsets (e.g., Sony, VIA Technologies, Philips, Lucent) have not been tested and are not supported.
