PS/2 Compatible Aux Port is a mouse driver produced by Semtech. A mouse is an input device used in computers. It works by detecting the two-dimensional movement compared to its supporting surface. A mouse device is usually held in the hand and features several elements. These include the wheels which permit several operations which are system independent; as well as additional buttons which ensure more control. The standard features of a mouse are two buttons, a scroll wheel and two buttons. The movement of the mouse translates into the movement of the pointer visible on a display, that is, the computer screen. Worth noting is that the mouse devices which are more advanced may have feature additional functions to enable the computer user to carry out a broad range of functions and operations which depend on the system.

There are many different mouse device types. These are divided into three large categories, namely, mechanical, optomechanical and optical. Mechanical mouse devices are those with a ball installed underneath them. This ball can move in all sides and in this process, the cursor also moves. Opto-mechanical mouse devices are pretty much the same as the mechanical ones but they use optical instead of mechanical sensors to sense the movement of the ball. Optical mice on the other hand use laser to detect this ball motion. PS/2 Compatible Aux Port uses a device driver to facilitate its operation. For the mouse device to function properly, users should always ensure that they are using the latest version of the device driver. Older versions have been known to create conflicts during functioning thereby producing errors in the work of the device.
