The AVT FirePackage is a comprehensive software package designed for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows operating systems. Due to its high-performance IEEE1394 bus driver, the contained SDK provides full access to and control of the FireWire bus and the corresponding image transmission for data rates of up to 800 Mbit/s (1394b), even under Windows Vista and XP.
The AVT FirePackage is available free of charge and provides the following components:
In combination with AVT cameras and with their powerful Smart Features, the AVT FirePackage enables programmers to develop 32- or 64-bit high-performance machine vision application that require time-critical and asynchronous imaging, sometimes with rapidly changing data rates in single or multiple camera operation.
1394 Bus Driver
The provided 1394 bus driver is not a capture device (camera) driver based on the Microsoft 1394 driver stack. This means that the Microsoft driver is replaced on all cards the driver is installed to, and the access for devices and applications that require the Microsoft driver is blocked.
The big advantage of this approach is that the driver is highly efficient and stable and supports IEEE1394b at S800 speed by default.
Besides this, the 1394 bus driver
In addition, please note that the driver requires a separate license for non-AVT cameras.
