FireWire card forms part of a new ExpressCard range

Stockton-on-Tees, UK (5th July 2007) – LINDY Electronics announced today the launch of its 2 Port FireWire ExpressCard that provides users with a simple and effective way to add two FireWire ports to notebooks equipped with the latest ExpressCard slots.

The LINDY FireWire ExpressCard supports data transfer speeds of up to 400Mbps making it ideal for connecting FireWire peripheral devices such as DV camcorders, scanners or external drives. The Card is a 34mm type and is compatible with both PCs and Macs.

“FireWire is a great for connecting your high speed devices, but you are lucky if your computer was supplied with even a single port,” says Andrew Ingram, product manager of LINDY Electronics. “With the LINDY FireWire ExpressCard adding FireWire ports to your notebook is a breeze.”

“The great thing about ExpressCard technology is that the direct interface with the computer’s PCI Express bus enables data transfer speeds high enough to allow cards such as our 2 Port eSATA II ExpressCard possible,” continued Ingram. “The eSata card and the FireWire card are just two of a range ExpressCards we have recently released.”

The range of LINDY ExpressCards includes the 2 Port FireWire Card, 2 Port eSATA II Card, the FireWire & USB 2.0 Combo Card and the Gigabit Ethernet Card. All are ExpressCard/34 type.

Additional specifications on the FireWire ExpressCard:
• Card connectors: 2 x 6 Pin FireWire Female
• Chipset: Texas Instruments
• Built-in power jack for optional adapter for use when connecting devices which require powered FireWire ports
• Compatible with Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP/Vista and Mac OS 8.6 & above

The LINDY 2 Port FireWire ExpressCard/34, part no 51500 is available now, RRP £44.99
