The hardware design also comes with the following input slots and options; 4 Hi-speed USB2.0 ports, 1 eSATA/USB 2.0 ombo (2-in-1 port) with PowerShare, 8-in-1 Media Card Reader, IEEE 1394a
(4-pin) port, ExpressCard Slot, Display Port , HDMITM, VGA-Video Output, Front Speakers Audio Out Connector/ Headphone Jack, Center Speaker and Subwoofer Audio Out Connector/ Headphone Jack, Rear Surround Audio Out Connector, Audio In/ Microphone Jack, Two Built-In Front Speakers, Center Speaker and Subwoofer Audio Out Connector/ Headphone Jack, Rear Surround Audio Out Connector, Audio In/ Microphone Jack, and Two Built-In Front Speakers.
Due to the functionality of the IEEE 1394a
FireWire library, capturing of the images with an asynchronous command is possible.
The IEEE 1394a
standard was developed for use with digital video and other demanding applications arising from the convergence of computers and consumer products.
Its 733MHz processor combines a powerful processing engine with versatile and flexible I/O capabilities with a variety of I/O interfaces that include three Ethernet ports (one Gigabit and two Fast Ethernet ports), two dual redundant MIL-STD-1553B ports, two IEEE 1394a
FireWire ports, two USB 2.0 ports, eight serial ports (six high-speed ports and two UART ports), and up to sixteen general-purpose discrete I/O channels.
* Multiple high-speed I/O connections, including both USB 2.0 and IEEE 1394a
Agere Systems Inc has unveiled a reference design that provides 1394a
and Universal Serial Bus (USB) host functionality on a single PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) add-in card.
