Granite Digital Announces 1394 Support for Large Hard Disks(January 09, 2002)
``We're excited to be the first to support the Maxtor 160GB drive using the industry standard OXFW911 silicon on our bridges,'' said Frank Gabrielli, President of Granite Digital. ``Our customers -- especially those in video editing applications -- are demanding large capacity drives with the fastest Firewire performance. Our engineers are continuing to innovate around the rock-solid OXFW911, giving our customers the fastest, most compatible, and now with our SMART IDE case kits, the easiest to use 1394-IDE bridge products in the industry.''
Granite is demonstrating its Granite FireVue line of 1394-IDE bridge controllers and case kits at Macworld Expo, Jan. 8-11. Demonstrations show operation with the new Maxtor 160GB hard disk.
Granite is also demonstrating its new FireVue SMART IDE case kits with integrated LCD display and keypad user interface. According to Gabrielli, ``The integrated user interface is like a `technician in the box.' It lets the user check out and control the hard disk even before plugging it into the computer. It's really going to make life easier for end users and IT professionals to manage their drives.''
Granite's FireVue products are fully compatible with Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL - news ) Macintosh and Windows® platforms, and Granite ships software for field-upgrading its products and a 1394 `Firewire' browser on both platforms.
