This adapter is used to connect FireWire 800 devices to older FireWire ports or vice versa. FireWire 800 is backwards-compatible with older FireWire devices, so the only limitation for compatibility is the new type of connector. This little problem is easily solved using this adapter. The adapter uses a 4-pin connector for the older FireWire devices. It ensures that data signals at up to 400 Mbit/s as well as power can be supplied to external devices.
