Category: Drivers

It’s difficult to pin down exactly what a “driver” is. Any device and operating system may connect with one other thanks to drivers, which are only software components.

It’s possible that, for example, a programme needs to read data from a device. Operating system functions are called by the operating system, and driver functions are called by the operating system. When a device driver is written by the same firm that designed and built the device, it knows how to interface with the device to obtain the data. The data is returned to the application by the operating system once it receives it from the device driver.
