seeing what’s up

The GL711 is a high-performance 1394 to ATA/ATAPI native bridge with an embedded SBP-2 target solution. It supports a solution for link/transaction layer controller conforming to the IEEE Std 1394 (IEEE 1394-1995 and IEEE 1394.a) up to 400Mbps transfer rate. Through the SBP-2 port driver, supported by Microsoft Windows 2000 and Windows 98 SE, Windows ME, SCSI class drivers can use SBP-2 to communicate with IEEE 1394 device using the SCSI command set.

By means of the embedded 8052 processor running the firmware located in ROM (internal or optionally external), GL711 provides an SBP-2 protocol engine to automatically achieve the transport of SCSI command and data over IEEE Std 1394 serial bus. GL711 provides a memory interface for reading/writing firmware from/to external Flash ROM, so that it makes software download easily and helps testing, development, or other specific application purpose. GL711 also supports an 8051 interface, which allows external 8051 to access the internal memory when the embedded 8052 was disabled for debugging and testing. The GL711 is ideally suited to hard disk drives (HDDs), MO, CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW and DVD. It allows IDE drives being able to connect to a 1394 serial bus in a plug-and-play fashion. The ATA/ATAPI interface of GL711 supports signal timing up to Ultra-DMA mode 5.
