Any Microcontroller with integrated IEEE1394?

Started by Roland Zitzke September 20, 2004
Hi,

I was wondering if there's any microcontroller with built-in 1394 support 
i.e. with the appropriate hardware connectivity and a firewire stack in 
firmware?

Google just gave me that MindReady solution which appears to be quite 
expensive.

Thanks in advance
Roland

Oxford Semiconductor has several.

But, as I know, for IDE-to-1394 applications only. There are a special link layer controller from TI with an integrated PHY and an ARM7 core with about 256k program memory, TSB43CB43. But it's more a specialized solution for digital audio/video applications. For general purpose stuff, I don't know an 'all-in-one' solution. Steffen -- http://www.df0hq.de
