Chapter 11: MANAGING DEVICE DRIVERS   4 DEVICE DRIVER FUNCTIONS A device driver exposes device-specific routines  to device-independent functions in the operating  system. A device driver allows you to manipulate the  physical properties of hardware devices. A device driver can provide functionality through  two separate driver components—a high-level  driver and a low-level driver.

Chapter 11: MANAGING DEVICE DRIVERS   5 DEVICES AND DRIVERS Some drivers (standard keyboard, mouse) are  generic, so a single driver can be used with  hundreds of compatible devices. Other drivers are very specific and work only with  a specific model of device. Generic drivers require less frequent updating  and therefore present fewer challenges to the  administrator.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
