CUPERTINO, Calif., April 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Apple(R) (Nasdaq: AAPL)
today announced it has acquired Zayante, a leader in IEEE 1394 (FireWire(R))
technology. Zayante's president and CEO Prashant Kanhere will join Apple to
promote the adoption of FireWire technology. "By acquiring Zayante, Apple is
extending its commitment to FireWire as the premiere, high-speed digital
interface solution," said Jon Rubinstein, Apple's senior vice president of
Hardware Engineering. "FireWire is the best technology to connect digital
devices that need to transfer lots of data quickly -- such as transferring
an entire CD from your Mac to your iPod in less than a second."

Apple invented FireWire in the mid-90s and shepherded it to become the
established cross-platform industry standard IEEE 1394. FireWire is a
high-speed serial input/output technology for connecting digital devices
such as digital camcorders and cameras to desktop and portable computers.
Widely adopted by digital peripheral companies such as Sony, Canon, JVC and
Kodak, FireWire has become the established industry standard for both
consumers and professionals and is a key part of Apple's Digital Hub

Zayante, Inc., was founded in 1996, and today Zayante's IEEE 1394 silicon

semiconductor manufacturers seeking to produce 1394-compliant products.
