ATA/ATAPI-8 revision 2b — AT Attachment — 8 ATA/ATAPI Command Set (January 10, 2006, draft)

The set of AT Attachment standards consists of this standard and the ATA implementation standards described in ATA8-AAM. The AT Attachment ATA Command Set (ATA8-ACS) specifies the command set host systems use to access storage devices. It provides a common command set for systems manufacturers, system integrators, software suppliers, and suppliers of intelligent storage devices.

This is the seventh ATA/ATAPI standard. Released in 2003.

The application environment for the AT Attachment Interface is any host system that has storage devices contained within the processor enclosure.

Volume 1 defines the register delivered commands used by devices implementing the standard.

Volume 2 defines the connectors and cables for physical interconnection between host and storage device, the electrical and logical characteristics of the interconnecting signals, and the protocols for the transporting commands, data, and status over the interface for the parallel interface.

Volume 3 defines the connectors and cables for physical interconnection between host and storage device, the electrical and logical characteristics of the interconnecting signals, and the protocols for the transporting commands, data, and status over the interface for the serial interface.

This is the sixth ATA/ATAPI standard. Released in 2001.

This standard defines the connectors and cables for physical interconnection between host and storage device, as well as the electrical and logical characteristics of the interconnecting signals. It also defines the operational registers within the storage device, and the commands and protocols for the operation of the storage device.

This is the fifth ATA/ATAPI standard. Released in 2000.

This standard defines the connectors and cables for physical interconnection between host and storage device, as well as, the electrical and logical characteristics of the interconnecting signals. It also defines the operational registers within the storage device, and the commands and protocols for the operation of the storage device.

This is the second ATA/ATAPI standard. Released in 1996.

This standard defines the AT Attachment Interface and integrated interfaces between devices and host processors. It provides a common point of attachment for systems manufacturers, system integrators, and suppliers of intelligent devices.

This is the first ATA/ATAPI standard. Released in 1994.

The standard defines the AT Attachment Interface. The standard defines an integrated bus interface between disk drives and host processors. It provides a common point of attachment for systems manufacturers, system integrators, and suppliers of intelligent peripherals.
