homepagedressingWelcome to the 1394 Trade Association

The 1394 Trade association (1394 TA) actively promotes the proliferation of the IEEE-1394 serial bus standard that is also known as firewire™, ilink™ and mil1394.  this member-driven association promotes the development and use of ieee-1394 through specification development, marketing and the 1394 TA compliance program.

The 1394 TA is active both in specification development within the 1394 Trade Association and in cooperation with other industry groups and organizations such as IEC (IEC 13818), JIIA (IIDC2), SAE (AS5643), ANSI (sbp-2) and IEEE (IP-1394) plus many more. this activity has enabled the application of 1394 technology in millions of products including computers, computer peripherals, pro-audio systems, industrial imaging equipment, and in aerospace, defense, consumer electronics and control systems.

With its technical activities, the 1394 TA continues to promote IEEE-1394-based technology and member companies’ products through various marketing channels, as determined by the marketing working group.

The 1394 TA compliance logo program helps ensure appropriate compatibility between 1394 enabled products with the goal of meeting or exceeding customer expectations. please consult the compliance page for specifics about the logo program and the Microsoft Windows logo program requirements for 1394 host controllers.


Members of the 1394 TA can impact the continued growth of 1394 and related technologies. to participate in or simply observe the continued development of IEEE-1394 please visit the membership page for details.
