What is ATA to my router?

I googled before posting here.  Question:

Repurposing an older router and doing reset/first boot, I see:

"Initializing ATA monitor library" and "62720K bytes of ATA CompactFlash (Read/Write)"

I understand the flash storage on the router, but what does "ATA" stand for?  (Also familiar with SATA drives, etc.).

Thanks much!  Your googling is better than mine (or mine is _that_ bad).

I figured it had to do with just ATA and/or, how the storage (flash) attaches to/uses the main board, but wanted a nice glossary page definition such as you provided..
