IEEE 1394 is an interface standard for a serial bus for high-speed communications and isochronous real-time data transfer. It was developed in the late 1980s and early 1990s by Apple in cooperation with a number of companies, primarily Sony and Panasonic.Apple called the interface FireWire.It is also known by the brands i.LINK (Sony), and Lynx (Texas Instruments). What is Firewire? » Hardware » Mac » Tech Ease: Along with USB, Firewire (also called IEEE 1394) is another popular connector for adding peripherals to your computer. Firewire is most often used to connect digital camcorders, external hard drives, and other devices that can benefit from the high transfer rates (up to 480 Mbps) supported by the Firewire connection. In this video I show the few options you have to connect older FireWire 400/800 devices to a new Mac which only has Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports.
