1394 Trade Association Issues New Article on How FireWire Delivers Cost Effective Benefits for Safety-Critical Military and Aerospace Systems

A new article developed by the 1394 Trade Association details the performance benefits of the 1394 (FireWire) standard when used in military and aerospace systems.

The new article is entitled “IEEE-1394 and AS5643 brings deterministic networking to high reliability Mil-Aero designs”. It appears on UBM’s Embedded.com publication at http://www.embedded.com/design/connectivity/4406396/IEEE-1394-and-AS5643-brings-deterministic-networking-to-high-reliability-Mil-Aero-designs-. The author, Richard Mourn, is a long-time systems developer who helped develop the original FireWire specification. He is chairman of the 1394 Trade Association and employed by DAP Technology, a global company that designs, develops, and markets high quality IEEE 1394 products and integrated solutions.

The article reviews how IEEE-1394 has been gaining traction as an aerospace and defense high-speed interface, as illustrated by its use in programs such as the F-35 Lightning II, NPOESS, X47B, JSOW, and X2000. The standard provides key features that couple with SAE Standard AS5643 to create a deterministic, robust, and redundant system architecture that meets most A&D requirements for a real-time control bus. The technologies deliver a cost effective solution for a variety of safety-critical subsystems.

The new article can also be found on the 1394 Trade Association website at http://www.1394ta.org/

The 1394 Trade Association is a worldwide organization dedicated to the advancement of the IEEE 1394 standard. More than 2.5 billion FireWire ports have shipped on a wide range of computing, consumer electronics, industrial, storage and other systems. For more information, visit www.1394ta.org.
