The SBC includes a Silicon Motion SM712 GPU, SVGA video routed to J5, 2 SATA ports, four COM ports, IDE interface
, PS/2 mouse and keyboard, CompactFlash site supporting up to 32-GB nonvolatile memory, and two PMC mezzanine card interfaces.
The kit also supports internal storage devices, such as hard drives, via the EZ-Host controller's on-chip IDE interface
In fact, I don't know if you know this but Western Digital helped develop the IDE interface
Complementing the new board's functionality are extensions to the existing serial and Ethernet capabilities (6 and 2 ports respectively), an SVGA graphics interface, two USB ports, a 16-bit digital I/O and an IDE interface
With the VXA-1 being the first tape drive to offer SCSI-class features and performance with an IDE interface
, Compaq can now address both SCSI and IDE interface

CompactFlash adapter supports Type I and II memory cards and IBM Microdrives via IDE interface
0, two Serial ATA, one IDE Interface
and Intel High Definition Audio.
Low-cost RAID devices using the low-cost serial IDE interface
are being implemented in a growing variety of storage appliances and blade servers addressing cost sensitive and lower performance markets.
Therefore, customers that do their own IDE interface
can take advantage of the WP# Pin feature.
In some portable applications, designers are challenged to keep up with these stringent demands when the embedded processor cannot keep up with the data transfer rate of the hard drive due to a lack of a native IDE interface
in the system.
The built-in IDE interface
supports two enhanced IDE devices including the Ultra DMA 33/66/100 mode with a data transfer rate up to 100 MB/sec.
