ATA is an abbreviation for Advanced Technology Attachment. It is a type of disk drive that integrates the drive controller directly on the drive itself. Computers can use ATA hard drives without a specific controller to support the drive. The motherboard must still support an ATA connection, but a separate controller card is not needed. Some different types of ATA standards include ATA-1, ATA-2, ATA-3, Ultra ATA (33 MBps maximum transfer rate), ATA/66 (66 MBps), ATA/100 (100 MBps) and ATA/133 (133 MBps).
