As a non-resident of Manchester, visiting my daughter in her university accommodation, I was caught out by the highly unusual and undeclared parallel bus lanes on Wilmslow Road, and was further confused by the solid white line, seemingly separating my side of the road from the other.
The public transport project in Riyadh - a metro network and a parallel bus network - is part of a plan for public transport developed by the HCDR.
When the device was influenced by the ESD, several logical 1 states occurred at the direct parallel bus. That means that there exists a real risk if the RFID reader is used directly to drive the actuators (for example the door lock), consisting in the fact that the attacker would bypass the authentication by giving the ESD shock to the RFID reader.
"We came up with the idea of having a parallel bus fleet to serve our needs," Ehab said.
"One of the applications we see for that is in DDR work." he said, which involves a wide parallel bus combined with the need for a very fast capture.
For low-speed and low-cost data streaming applications (<80 MB/s)--while the PCI bus may be sufficient care should be taken, since, as a parallel bus, it shares bandwidth with other devices.

* Driven by a host using either an 8 or 16-bit parallel bus, CANBus 2.0 B, or an asynchronous serial port.
For example, PCI is parallel, while PCI Express is serial, eliminating the risk of electrical perturbations that can occur on a parallel bus. In addition, PCI is a synchronous bus, with every transaction timed in tune with a centralized clock, while PCI Express provides an embedded clock function through its use of 8B/10B encoding.
One portion of Franklin Boulevard, between Agate and Moss streets, features two parallel bus lanes.
Close examination of PCI signaling technology reveals that the parallel bus architecture of PCI is reaching its performance limits.
