Hi All!

ABC company is planning to target costumer electronics which can be
easily integrated with windows family w2K onward and they want to make
sure that their product should be PnP.
Now their technical head is stuck in design phase , there are following
options in front of him:

1) Device should generate an interrupt [From low to high or high to low
transition] when ever plugged in. At least single transition should be
there to tell its presence.

2) Device should come up with proper set of protocol [ Series of
transitions , handshaking ] That is preferred approach.

3) No Device should be dump , It should never generate an interrupt
when ever plugged in. PC Software(Driver) will take care of it. [
Doesn't it make any sense? ]


Your Option!

Let's start with the interface choice. What bus do you want to use? PCI?
USB?

PCI bus would be their choice.

the PCI bus driver would take care of detecting insertion and removal of the
device, you don't have to do anything in software other then conform to the
PCI spec.
