       ieee1394, firewire, 1394 - Solaris IEEE-1394 Architecture

       IEEE-1394 provides a means for interconnecting devices  in computer and
       home entertainment systems. (The IEEE-1394 architecture is  also	 known
       as  Firewire,  an  Apple	 Computer trademark, and i.Link, a Sony trade‐
       mark). The most common IEEE-1394 devices	 are digital camcorders, mass-
       storage	devices	 and cameras (including webcam-type devices). For more
       information on USB, refer to the	 1394  Trade  Association  website  at

       The  Solaris  IEEE-1394	architecture  supports	up to 63 hot-pluggable
       IEEE-1394 devices per IEEE-1394 bus. The maximum data transfer rate  is
       400 Mbits, depending on the capabilities of the attached device.

       The Solaris IEEE-1394 architecture supports devices implementing a num‐
       ber of different specifications. The basic behavior  of	the  IEEE-1394
       bus  is	described in the IEEE 1394-1995 and IEEE 1394a-2000 specifica‐

       IEEE-1394 host controllers implementing the 1394 Open  Host  Controller
       Interface specification are supported. Camcorders      implementing the
       IEC 61883 and 1394 Trade Association AV/C specifications are supported.
       Mass-storage devices implementing the ANSI SBP-2 specification are sup‐
       ported.	Digital	 cameras  implementing	the  1394  Trade   Association
       1394-based Digital Camera (IIDC) specification are supported.

       Listed  below  are drivers and modules which either utilize or are uti‐
       lized by the Solaris IEEE-1394 architecture. Drivers in /kernel/drv are
       32   bit	 drivers  (only).  Drivers  in	/kernel/drv/sparcv9  or	 /ker‐
       nel/drv/amd64 are 64 bit drivers.

       Booting	from  IEEE-1394 mass-storage devices is not supported, but may
       be possible if supported by the BIOS of the computer	 system.
