IEEE 1394 Connectors

Peripheral Mastery

With only one type of connector, your PC can connect to several different pieces of digital peripheral equipment.

The IEEE 1394 connector series —capable of accommodating data rates up to 400 megabytes per second for serial transmission—consists of six-position connectors (for connections of computers to peripherals), and four-position connectors (for connections of digital AV equipment). Four-position to six-position transition-type cable assemblies are used for connections of computers to digital AV equipment. We offer a screw thread size of M1.6 and two types of headers: dual inline package (DIP) and surface-mount technology (SMT). These four-position connectors help us manage a wide range of device designs and are suitable for DVD, set-top box, etc. The cable assemblies are also available with four-position to four-position type, for connection of AV equipment; four-positions to six-positions of transition type, for connections of PC and AV equipment; and six-position to six-position type for connections of PC and peripherals.
