Orange Micro has announced the UK availability of its OrangeLink FireWire/USB PCI board.

Priced at £129, the expansion board is designed to upgrade legacy Macs to current IEEE 1394 (FireWire) and USB technology. It has two USB and two FireWire ports that are compatible with all known peripherals conforming to the specifications.

The FireWire ports use technology similar to that on Apple’s G4 system, running at 400Mbps and providing 15W of power on a typical system.

The OrangeLink FireWire/USB PCI board is bundled with Adobe Premiere LE, a software package designed for novice digital-video editors.
