December 3, 2007 -- Elka International and MainSuper Co. Ltd., both of Taiwan, have earned the 1394 Trade Association's compliance logo for their respective 1394a cables and connectors. The compliance logo indicates that specific products comply with the 1394 Trade Association's Cable and Connector Compliance Test Specification.
Elka and MainSuper join Comoss and Newnex Corporation in recently completing the compliance test program. Elka was awarded the compliance logo for its 6-circuit and 4-circuit cable assemblies. Main Super was awarded the logo for its 6-circuit and 4-circuit connectors.
"We continue to make significant progress in ensuring that the leading cable and connector suppliers meet the compliance requirements," says James Snider, executive director of the 1394 Trade Association. "All 1394-equipped products, from hard drives to cameras to scanners to computers, must use cables and connectors that meet our compliance requirements in order to be certified as 1394-compliant. Having the leading connector and cable manufacturers step up to this requirement is a very positive development."
The announcement was made at the quarterly 1394 Trade Association meeting, which was held in Taipei Nov. 13-16 and hosted by Elka, Comoss, Main Super and ETC, a Taiwan-based test organization.
