I speak about the duplex devices here, which have 2 CCDs (or
similar and scan both sides at the same time (long supported by
the Avision backend, btw. :-)

Avision developed several ways to transfer the duplex data (aside
from the few, trivial) paper flipping devices with just a single CCD),
for some they buffer the page in-memory inside the scanner, for newer
ones there are several interlaced variants.

For the interlaced variants I so far buffer the rear stripes in the  
and return the backed data every second frame.

Probably the fujitsu backend does something similar.
