ATA Channel Interface Routines

Note  The ATA port driver and ATA miniport driver models may be altered or unavailable in the future. Instead, we recommend using the Storport driver and Storport miniport driver models.
 
Vendor-supplied miniport drivers can optionally implement a set of routines that define the channel interface. By using these routines, the miniport driver can process every request that is sent to the hardware. The miniport driver must not implement the channel interface partially. If the miniport driver supports the AtaChannelInitRoutine routine, it should also implement the following routines:

AtaChannelInitRoutine

IdeHwInitialize

IdeHwBuildIo

IdeHwStartIo

IdeHwInterrupt

IdeHwReset

IdeHwControl
