The VIA OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller is a compact single chip that is characterized by high speeds. It connects easily to IEEE enabled devices through seamless plug and play using a low power connection. It has a serial bus called a Firewire which exhibits very high speeds. It has an interface for video applications and audios for digital. It is the best known PCI which interconnects systems through the peer to peer connectivity. The VIA OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller is known for its compatibility with other devices such as hard disks, printers, video cameras, game consoles and multimedia connections. It has two ports which are low powered. While in use, the VIA OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller guarantees the user flexible connectivity and high speeds which is evident in all the computer's peripherals.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The VIA OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller has the capability of detecting other drivers in computers and electronic devices and configures them automatically. This leads to the production of data packets that are of an isochronous and asynchronous nature. It comes with an integrated interface of 32 bit PCI bus that includes cardbus support and power management that is advanced. This ensures easy connections on plug and play mode and high data transfer rates are experienced when using disk drives with media content. It maximizes on power use as it has an automatic feature that shuts down all ports which are not in use. It also features a ‚Äòsleep mode' which switches off the system when not in use for an amount of time. Users on the VIA OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller are guaranteed of a cost effective device on power and maintenance costs. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and VIA OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller errors before installing any driver updates.
