In computing, a device driver is a software program that allows higher-level program to communicate with hardware device and it controls and operates a device, which is attached to a system. Typically, a driver communicates with device through communication bus system to which hardware connects.
Normally developing a device driver needs a deep understating of both hardware and software. These drivers needs fine environment to perform well, suppose anything goes wrong then it will not function in desired path. Sometimes, these drivers could crash the system when the device is programmed wrongly. Therefore, it is cleared that designing the drivers requires skilled and professional software engineers. Somehow, it requires the aid of even hardware development companies.
Therefore, whenever the driver is developed by both hardware and software, then there are chances of occurring any issues then it crashes the system and frankly, it is very complicated to rectify the issue whether it is raised by software or by any hardware conflicts. So in order to overcome such situation, Microsoft has designed Windows Drive Foundation, it completely reduce the instability and produce healthy functions.
Due to vary of modern operating system and hardware components, drivers operate in various environments. Drivers may interface with
Common levels of abstraction for device drivers include:
