Macsense Connectivity announced three new FireWire products products today: the Macsense FireWire PCI Adapter, FireWire CardBus Card and FireWire Repeater. The Macsense FireWire PCI Adapter allows Mac and PC users to link any FireWire-compatible peripheral for a transfer rate of up to 400 Mbps. It supports hot swapping of FireWire peripherals.

The Macsense FireWire CardBus PC Card supplies a high-speed 1394 serial interface to Macintosh PowerBooks via a Type II PC Card and is also fully hot-swappable.

The Macsense FireWire Repeater breaks the cable distance barrier of 15'. Any device can be placed at greater distances without compromising Firewire's 400 Mbps transfer rate, according to Macsense. Each repeater contains 3 ports for daisychaining.

All three products are supposed to be available today, though pricing was not available at press time. For more information, visit http://www.macsense.com.
