It replaces the Ultra ATA/100 interface (otherwise known as the latest-generation Parallel ATA interface) —; which is used to connect most PCs to their primary storage, and which has now become a bottleneck because it has reached its maximum burst data transfer rate speed of 100 MB/sec.
Serial ATA, on the other hand, has a burst data transfer rate speed of 150 MB/sec in its initial iteration and is expected to double in speed roughly every three years — to 300 MB/sec in 2004, 600 MB/sec in 2007, and so on.

Serial ATA is a serial link -- a single cable with a minimum of four wires used to create a point-to-point connection between devices.
One of the main design advantages of Serial ATA is that it has thinner serial cables that facilitate more efficient airflow inside a form factor and also allow for smaller chassis designs.
Essentially ATA allows two devices per ATA connector that are configured in a standard Master-Slave setup, while SATA only allows a single device per connector.
