When taken in the context of the Universal Serial Bus interface port standard the communication layer allows the connection between the supported device and the Personal Computer which serves as the host controller. In this context the device driver for the TSE USB 2.0 Host Controller is responsible for maintaining the communication infrastructure that will allow the interconnected devices to initiate various types of data exchange processes. Because of the high speed data transfer rate that can be achieved via the Universal Serial Bus interface port it is being considered as an alternative and subsequent replacement for other types of interfaces like the parallel and serial connections among others. In older computer systems this interface is not inherently supported which makes devices connected via this communication port inoperable until the corresponding device driver is loaded correctly by the host operating system platform.
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 increasing popularity of this communication interface has prompted the deployment of various electronic devices that make use of the Universal Serial Bus connection. These devices range from digital cameras, media players, printers, and external storage media among others. All of these devices are supported by a corresponding device driver which allows the host operating system environment to detect their presence once connected to the machine. Since the Universal Serial Bus interface connection is a relatively new technology, older computer systems which do not have built-in support rely on the use of expansion and controller cards like the TSE USB 2.0 Host Controller to upgrade their functionality. These expansion cards function in much the same way as their built-in counterparts and make use of the same class codes. The device driver helps to identify the correct class code for the attached hardware component. The class code is based on the functionality delivered by the attached device. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and TSE USB 2.0 Host Controller errors before installing any driver updates.
