What is SATA
SATA is a computer bus technology that is primarily used to transfer data to and from I/O devices such as hard drives and CD/ DVD drives. This technology evolved from PATA or Parallel Advance Technology Attachment Standard. Both technologies incorporate low level controls integrated into the devices. IDE is usually a term that refers only to Parallel ATA devices. The SATA bus was released in 2003 and typically has a transfer rate of 1.5 Gbps. This first generation is also know as SATA/150 or SATA 1. This technology uses 8B/10B encoding at the physical layer which results in an actual data transfer rate of 1.2 Gbps. Because of the simplicity of this serial link and the use of LVDS (Low voltage differential signaling), this allows for longer drive cables and provides for an easier transition path to higher speeds. Following shortly after the introduction of SATA, an enhancement to the standard, increased the signaling rate to 3 Gbps. This enhancement is called SATA/300, SATA 3.0 or SATA II. Future plans include the introduction of SATA 6.0 Gbps. Even though this will essentially double the data throughput, conventional drives will be unable to deliver on this increase in data transfer. The true benefit to this new standard lies in the technologies use of port multipliers which will allow a single port to connect multiple drives as well as the future introduction of solid state drives such as RAM disks. One of the big differences between SATA and the older PATA is in the cable specifications. Being an 40 or 80 conductor wire the older PATA cables were limited to a maximum length of 18" (46 cm). SATA cables because the are only 7 conductors allow for a maximum length of 39" (1 meter). The SATA standard also replaces the old Molex style power 4 pin connector and replaces it with a wafer based connector. This relatively large power connector is necessary because three different voltages: 3.3 V, 5 V, and 12 V are required.
