The SATA host controller handles data interactions between a local host system memory and a SATA mass storage device with minimal local host (LH) intervention.
In contrast to the parallel 16-bit - ATA (PATA) interface, the SATA interface takes advantage of serial data transmission/reception over a differential pair of conductors. SATA uses the command set from the ATA/ATAPI-6 standard augmented with native command queuing (NCQ) commands optimized for the serialized interface.
The device has one embedded SATA host bus adapter (HBA) controller with a single port.
