FireWire trade group

Apple and other high-tech companies will lead the 1394 (FireWire) Trade Association in 2006, and Eric Anderson of Apple was re-elected as board chairman following elections for the organization's nine-member board last week. Apple, Samsung Electronics, Texas Instruments, Microsoft, Agere, and Oxford Semiconductor will hold seats on the new board. Sam Liu of Newnex will serve as vice chairman. Other Board members also include Dave Thompson of Agere Systems, who will serve as the 1394 Trade Association secretary; Michael Scholles of Germany's Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems, who was named editor and Chief Technical Officer; Mark Slezak of Microsoft; Jalil Oraee of Oxford Semiconductor, who is the chief financial officer and Jack Chaney of Samsung. "The members of this 2006 board reflect the wide influence and broad applications of the IEEE 1394 standard," said James Snider, executive director. "We have leadership and representation from a very broad range of markets, including consumer electronics, computers, peripherals, audio, and industrial. We anticipate a strong year for the standard, and excellent leadership from this diverse group."
