serial IDE A serial version of the parallel IDE interface widely used for hard disk attachment. Serial IDE supports data transfer rates up to 150 Mbytes/s and enhancements up to 600 Mbytes/s are planned. Cables are much smaller than the flat ribbon cables used conventionally and can be up to a meter long. Serial IDE is compatible with existing IDE standards.
