EIDE (Enhanced Integrated Development Environment) - Definition

EIDE is an abbreviation for Enhanced Integrated Development Environment. It is a term that Western Digital coined to represent a particular set of extensions it devised to the original AT Attachment standard. At that time, the official ATA standard was rather limiting, and work was progressing towards a new standard. Western Digital decided not to wait for the new standard and creating a new feature set for future disk drives. The name Enhanced IDE was presumably selected so that it could build upon the common name for ATA in popular use at that time, which was IDE.
