Yes. That is the only thing that can be done with the ISDx00 chips.

That is not possible. The ISDx00 chips don't support peering. They can only
function as a USB slave ATA device, nothing else. Our only intention with
the USB support is to detect the USB connection and give the ATA bus to the
ISDx00 chip.
