MEC-FIR-M003 is a FireWire card for embedded PC. The card follows the Mini PCI-e standard which is complaint with PCI
Express x 1 classification and small form factor (30.00 x 50.95 mm). This board fits in any host computer that has Mini
PCI-e card slots.
Top Performance
MEC-FIR-M003 has 1 port of 1394A that provides transfer rate of 400 Mbps, 2 ports of 1394B that provide transfer
rate of 800 Mbps. It supports the Hot-Swap function which allows devices to be plugged in or removed while bus is
Compatibility with Various Types of Devices
MEC-FIR-M003 is compatible with a wide range of FireWire devices which includes DV camcorder, hard disk drive,
removable drive, scanner, digital camera, and other 1394 audio/video devices.
High Usability
MEC-FIR-M003 is designed with flexibilities for many different applications. The accessories (daughter board,
bracket, connection / power input cable) are included in the standard package.
MECFIX – Versatile Mounting
MECFIX is the unique mounting mechanism designed specially for
MEC daughterboard. The feature of the mounting unit allows the
following mounting options:
1. Standard PCI/PCIe Bracket
2. Low Profile PCI/PCIe Bracket
3. Internal Mounting inside of PC system from
any position and angle.
4. Customizing Front/Rear Plate of PC system
according to dimension of MEC daughterboard.
