FireWire is Apple Inc.'s brand name for the IEEE 1394 interface (although the 1394 standard also defines a backplane interface). It is also known as i.Link (Sony's name) or Lynx cable. It is a personal computer (and digital audio/digital video) serial bus interface standard, offering high-speed communications and isochronous real-time data services. FireWire has replaced Parallel SCSI in many applications, due to lower implementation costs and a simplified, more adaptable cabling system. IEEE 1394 has been adopted as the High Definition Audio-Video Network Alliance (HANA) standard connection interface for A/V (audio/visual) component communication and control FireWire is also available in wireless, fibre optic and coaxial versions using the isochronous protocols.
Almost all modern digital camcorders have included this connection since 1995. Many computers intended for home or professional audio/video use have built-in FireWire ports including all Apple, Dell (except the Inspiron 1501, Dimension 8300 series, and Latitude 131L) and Sony laptop computers currently produced. It is also widely available on retail motherboards for DIY (do-it-yourself) PCs (personal computers), alongside USB. FireWire was used with initial models of Apple's iPod, but later models eliminated FireWire support in favour of USB due to space constraints and for wider compatibility.
