Zayante Offers Training Course in 1394b Technology

Two-day course is scheduled for November 14-15 (October 08, 2001)
Zayante, Inc. is now providing a comprehensive, two-day 1394b education course including extensive technical details on bilingual -- both beta and legacy -- operation.

The two-day course is scheduled for November 14-15. In addition, Zayante is offering a half day introduction to IEEE 1394 on November 13. The combination price is $3,000 per person; the price for the two-day, 1394b only version is $2,500 per person. Both versions include continental breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon break. The course will be held at Zayante headquarters or at a nearby hotel depending on the number of attendees.

The Zayante course incorporates tutorials and technical presentations for engineering managers and design engineers who are initiating product development based on the 1394b standard. It includes extensive technical training in bilingual, along with tutorials on the differences between the new 1394b beta mode and the earlier 1394a version of the specification. Specific focus is on port operation, connectivity management, arbitration, and the PHY-Link interface. Also included are sessions on hybrid bus operation, C code and state machine review, and the application of 1394b in the PC and hard drives.

The course will be conducted by Michael Teener and Jerry Hauck of Zayante, Inc.
The newly-introduced "b" version of the IEEE 1394 multimedia bus specification enables speeds and bandwidth of 800 Megabits/second, with a clear road map all the way to 3.2 Gigabits/second. The "b" version also extends the distance over which video and audio data can be moved to 100 meters over plastic optical fiber, as compared with previous 1394 versions, and includes significant technical enhancements to the specification. Zayante engineers chaired five of the nine working groups that invented, reviewed, tested and validated much of the 1394b technology, and comprised a significant leadership position on the ballot review committee.

"Interoperability between the 1394b based products from different vendors is critical to the success of this industry" said Prashant Kanhere, Zayante's CEO. "From our past experience in 1394-1995 and 1394A-2000, designing interoperable products requires a very solid understanding of the specifications. By providing an in-depth training course on this complex new technology, we hope to promote a high level of interoperability in 1394b based products"
