The Microsoft UAA Bus Driver for High Definition Audio is produced and manufactured by Microsoft. The driver document presents programming rules and a set of reference pages for the Intel High Definition (HD) Audio device driver interface (DDI). Audio and modem drivers call the routines in the DDI to direct hardware codecs that are connected to an HD Audio bus interface controller. Microsoft also aims to create and improve a similar HD Audio bus driver and UAA class driver for systems that run other Operating Systems. The HD Audio bus driver integrates the HD Audio device driver interface or DDI, which kernel-mode audio and modem drivers make use of to interact with hardware codecs that are connected to the HD Audio controller. The HD Audio bus driver presents the HD Audio DDI to its children, which are instances of the audio and up to date drivers that control the codecs.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The Microsoft UAA Bus Driver for High Definition Audio is distributed by Microsoft. Its Universal Audio Architecture or UAA identifies class driver architecture for computer audio solutions supported in the coming edition of the Microsoft Windows Vista Operating System. The aim of UAA is to give the users with a class driver architecture that gives out standard audio functionality in the Operating System and presents an alternative to third-party drivers for users who experience compatibility difficulties with audio on their systems or who might not require enhanced audio features. In the present computers, various audio chipsets and different add-in adapter structures need different drivers. There is no industry specification for audio that allows Microsoft to provide a general audio driver with the Operating System. Because of this diversity, Microsoft is not able to assure the support for all possible audio hardware solutions. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Microsoft UAA Bus Driver for High Definition Audio errors before installing any driver updates.
