EIDE (Enhanced IDE)

EIDE is an enhanced version of IDE. EIDE is more marketing name then a technical standard. EIDE includes the ATA-2 standard and ATAPI. Also it assigns a port for the secondary host adapter port. This allowed the (nowadays standard) dual host adapters. EIDE also defined an approach to the 504MB addressing limit.
