The market already has PATA, ATAPI
, Hybrid ATA, SCSI and Fibre Channel.
Later, in order to eliminate the extra cost of the host adapter, the ATAPI
specification was added to the ATA standard as a method for transmitting SCSI commands across ATA hardware by encapsulating or packetizing much of the SCSI protocol into standard ATA data transfers.
An IDE / ATAPI
interface offers easy integration and the unit can be installed either horizontally or vertically.
Drive Image 4.0 works with IDE, SCSI, or ATAPI
drives that are Multi-Media Command Set version 2 (MMC-2)-compliant, which includes most newer drives.
(EIDE) internal interface -- DVD+R DL: 2.4X CLV (max.) writing DVD+R: 16X CAV (max.) writing DVD+RW: 4X CLV (max.) rewriting DVD-R: 8X Z-CLV (max.) writing DVD-RW: 4X CLV (max.) rewriting DVD-ROM reading (single layer): 16X CAV (max.) DVD-ROM reading (dual layer): 8X CAV (max.) CD-R: 48X CAV (max.) writing CD-RW: 24X Z-CLV (max.) rewriting CD-ROM: 48X CAV (max) reading -- Dimensions: 145.8 x 41.3 x 165 mm -- excluding bezel (W x H x L)1" shorter depth than standard form factor -- Compatible with Microsoft Windows 2000 / Windows XP -- Burst data transfer rate: 66.6 MB/s max.
But if the user must analyze ATAPI-level commands (in SATA interface), the presentation layer should elevate the low-level packets to the ATAPI
command level and show a transaction at that level.
The new internal Hornet 40 ATAPI
and TapeStor Travan 40 bundled solution drive specifications include 20-Gbyte native capacity/cartridge with 2 Mbytes/sec native transfer rate and backward-read compatibility with Travan 20-Gbyte technology.
The internal drive connects directly to a computer's IDE (ATAPI
) interface, so no additional controller board is required.
The drives themselves attach to computers using a wide range of interfaces, from legacy ATAPI
and SCSI connectors, to High-Speed USB 2.0 and cutting-edge Fire Wire (IEEE 1394).
Flexible ports enable direct interfacing with the front panel, the infrared sensor, multiple drive types (ATAPI
, A/V, UDE, S2B), and an MPEG encoder.
The CRW8824 series will feature four models: the internal CRW8824E unit using EIDE (ATAPI
) technology, the internal CRW8824SZ using Ultra SCSI (SCSI-3) technology, the external CRW8824SXZ using Ultra SCSI interface, and the external CRW8824FXZ using IEEE 1394 Firewire technology.
The DMN-8652 further integrates a second dedicated ATAPI
port, an NTSC/PAL TV encoder, video DACs and a USB controller.
