Overview

This 3 Port PCI Express FireWire adapter card can be installed in a PCI Express slot to add two IEEE1394b (FireWire 800 - 9 pin) ports and one IEEE1394a (FireWire 400 - 6 pin) port, providing broad compatibility with a wide range of FireWire devices (e.g. DV camcorders, external hard drives, digital cameras, etc.).

The 2b, 1a card features a native (single chip) PCI Express chipset - resulting in faster, more reliable and cost effective performance than expansion cards that utilize a "bridge" chip.

The StarTech.com Advantage

  • Utilizes a native PCI Express chipset design rather than a bridge chip, ensuring a fast, reliable and cost-effective FireWire expansion
  • Backed by a StarTech.com lifetime warranty and free lifetime technical support
