Advanced Technology Attachment Interface with Extensions

(storage, standard)Advanced Technology Attachment Interface with Extensions - (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 designs.

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.

ATA-2 was developed by Western Digital as "Enhanced Integrated Drive Electronics" (EIDE) around 1994. Marketroids call it "Fast ATA" or "Fast ATA-2".

ATA-2 was followed by ATA-3 and ATA-4 ("Ultra DMA").
