Jump to user comments
storage, standard (ATA-2, Enhanced Integrated Drive
Electronics, EIDE) A proposed (May 1996 or earlier?)
standard from X3T10 (document 948D rev 3) which extends
the Advanced Technology Attachment interface while
maintaining compatibility with current IBM PC BIOS
ATA-2 provides for faster data rates, 32-bit transactions and
(in some drives) DMA. Optional support for power saving
modes and removable devices is also in the standard.
