Several markets can make use of the FireCore Basic including Aerospace & Defense, Industrial, and Consumer Electronics. As a special option, AS5643 (Mil1394) protocol support is planned for FireCore Basic. While current implementations require significant host software support, FireCore will be able to support this layer with significantly better timing as well as reduced host resource utilization. Examples of typical applications in aerospace & defense for FireCore include command & control systems for space-based vehicles, missile guidance platforms, fighter aircraft flight control, as well as its implementation in avionics & IFE platforms for business and commercial aircraft.
The industrial applications of FireCore are quite broad and include robotics, machine vision, wide format digital printing and medical imaging. Finally, FireCore is ideal for use in Consumer Electronics equipment such as Set Top Boxes, DVD peripherals and High Definition A/V equipment.
