ESDI Abbrev. for enhanced small-device interface. A scheme for connecting hard disks to microcomputers with a serial transfer rate of 10–25 bps. It allows a disk controller to communicate with the disk drive through standard cables and connectors using standard control and data signals. ESDI has been largely superseded by IDE and SCSI device attachment standards.
