A circuit based on the LT1776 that provides power for the IEEE1394 Fire Wire is described.
IEEE1394 Fire Wire
Faster microprocessors, more memory and better graphics have fueled the rapid growth of the personal computer industry. However, many of the peripheral connections use older interface technologies that are starting to limit performance and growth for future applications.
The IEEE1394 High Performance Serial Bus (“FireWire”) addresses these interface issues by providing a flexible and cost-effective way to share real-time information among data-intensive applications, such as digital camcorders, digital VCRs and digital video disks ...
