New Developments In IEEE-1394 Standards For The Cable Set-Top Box (2003)

By Mark Eyer, Sony Electronics

In December 2002, consumer electronics manufacturers joined with cable MSOs in announcing an historic agreement on digital cable compatibility. Among the provisions identified in the agreement was a commitment on the part of cable operators to provide, by July 2005, IEEE-1394 interfaces on high-definition digital cable set-top boxes acquired for distribution to consumers. Two standards related to the 1394 interface were cited in the agreement, ANSI/SCTE 26 [1] and CEA-931-A [2]. This paper describes the agreed-upon functionality of this high-speed serial bus network interface, and provides an in-depth discussion of the new CEA-931-A protocol.
