Adaptec is to release a card combining IEEE.1394 'FireWire' and Ultra Wide SCSI.

The firm's AHA-8945 FireCard Ultra puts both features on the card, providing the ability to connect FireWire-enabled devices like DV digital video camcorders and quickly store the resulting data.

Up to 63 FireWire devices and fifteen SCSI devices can be connected directly to the card, Adaptec said.
