One lane would mean there is one lane. While it may look to the untrained eye that data is moving on both firewire and esata at the same time (which it would be!) that would be only a packet or buffer being transferred so if we get too Dilbert on it, it's not at the same time.
However does this matter? Have you tested that your application works or not?
Hey folks, questions here about PCI express. Looking at these Combo cards out there with say, a couple FW800 ports and an eSata port (this would be exactly what I need).
Can these really run i/o at the same time, simultaniously moving data, or they are to be used one at a time (says 'onelane'. Common sense is telling me 'no' i suppose)
Not that I am settled on this one, but as an example:
thank you kindly for your input!
(btw: this is not a compatability question, but rather a theory question about typical PCI bussing architecture. I will take care of comapatablity...)
