Are you a longtime Mac user? If so, you've probably purchased a few peripherals along the way - devices like DV camcorders, external drives, and even an old iPod or two - and some of them probably have FireWire 400 interfaces. Your older Mac probably had at least two FireWire ports, so connecting more than one of those devices at the same time was easy. But if there's only one FireWire port, and the connectors didn't match! Sonnet's Yin•Yang FireWire 800 to FireWire 400/800 mini hub solves both problems.

Yin•Yang plugs into the single FireWire 800 (IEEE 1394b) port found on most Mac computers and enables you to connect and use a FireWire 400 device (the Yin) and a FireWire 800 device (the Yang) at the same time. Yin•Yang doesn't need one power adapter, yet it will support a bus-powered 2.5" drive on either port. Fully IEEE 1394 compliant, this mini hub requires no drivers, supports all industry standard FireWire peripherals, and allows you to plug in and disconnect devices without shutting off your computer. Yin•Yang is very small and rugged. The hub housing is about the size of a matchbox. Whether you use Yin•Yang at home or on the road, you'll get expanded connectivity for all of your FireWire devices.

Product Highlights
  • Provides a simple way to connect both a FireWire 400 device and a FireWire 800 device at the same time to a single FireWire 800 port on your computer
  • Supports concurrent data transfers to and from two attached devices at 800 Mbps and 400 Mbps, respectively
  • Operates without an external power supply
  • Supports one bus-powered device on either port
  • Allows you to plug in and disconnect peripherals without shutting off your computer
