    Hardware-FDE has 2 major components: the hardware encryptor and the data store. There are currently three varieties of hardware-FDE:

    1. Hard Disk Drive (HDD) FDE
    2. Enclosed Hard Disk Drive
    3. Bridge and Chipset (BC) FDE

    In this case I think Version and Type are the same.

    FDE.3 is Bridge and Chipset. Meaning that there is some hardware between the CPU and the Hard drive that does the encrypting/decrypting. So you could have a motherboard or storage controller card with FDE.3 but use standard hard drives.
    FED.1 & 2 are special Hard drives with built in FDE
