Advanced Technology Attachment Interface with Exte
<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 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").
