Question 12

Operating System

Describe in Detail


What is device drivers?


  • Device driver is actually a communication layer between device and computer.
  • When a new device is added, the driver should be installed in order to run the program.
  • Device drivers plug into an OS to handle a particular device.
  • Operating System takes help from device drivers to handle all I/O devices.
  • Device drivers encapsulate device-dependent code and implement a standard interface in such a way that code contains device-specific register reads/writes.
  • Device driver is generally written by the device՚s manufacturer and delivered along with the device on a CD-ROM.
  • How a device driver handles a request is as follows:
    • Suppose a request comes to read a block N. If the driver is idle at the time a request arrives, it starts carrying out the request immediately.
    • Otherwise, if the driver is already busy with some other request, it places the new request in the queue of pending requests.
