Reference Tables for FireWire Isochronous Bandwidth Usage - The details in this paper provide a concise explanation of how FireWire bandwidth works, and a complete set of reference tables so users can achieve these objectives. Tables are provided for users who intend to oversubscribe the available isochronous bandwidth to a certain extent, so that in these cases the designer can make the correct calculations.
FireWire Reference Tutorial - This document is a FireWire tutorial aimed at engineers who have no previous exposure or understanding of FireWire. Its purpose is to familiarize the reader with FireWire and to build a sound and complete understanding of how the FireWire bus operates from the experiences of expert members of the 1394 Trade Association.
FireWire Design Guide 2010 - This document provides guidelines for implementing FireWire (IEEE 1394) ports on both high level complex devices such as personal computers and simple devices such as inexpensive consumer electronics products. The guide includes references to normative specifications as well as full reference designs that can be used as is or, with the careful consideration of the trade-offs, as a starting point for a more optimized design.
