FireWire is Apple Inc.'s brand name for the IEEE 1394 interface; the offical name for the standard and is also known as i.LINK (Sony's name). You have probably heard the term FireWire if you have any interest in digital video. FireWire is a way to connect different pieces of equipment so they can easily and quickly share information.
Originally created by Apple and standardized in 1995 as the specification IEEE 1394 High Performance Serial Bus, FireWire is very similar to Universal Serial Bus (USB). The designers of FireWire had several particular goals in mind when they created the standard:
- Fast transfer of data
- Ability to put lots of devices on the bus
- Ease of use
- Hot-pluggable ability
- Provision of power through the cable
