Interfacing & Handshaking Cards

HideShow resource information
Interfacing is where devices need to communicate with one another (e.g. PC sending a job to the printer) - they have to interface with each other.
Interfacing can be seen as one device communicating with another device.
1 of 5

A driver is a piece of software that ensures that all devices can be understood by the computer and that the computer can be understood by the devices.
