UHIDEV(4)                BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                UHIDEV(4)

NAME
     uhidev -- USB Human Interface Device support

SYNOPSIS
     device uhid
     device ukbd
     device ums

DESCRIPTION
     The uhidev driver handles all Human Interface Devices.  Each HID device
     can have several components, e.g., a keyboard and a mouse.  These compo-
     nents use different report identifiers (a byte) to distinguish which one
     data is coming from.  The uhidev driver has other drivers attached that
     handle particular kinds of devices and uhidev only dispatches data to
     them based on the report ID.

SEE ALSO
     uhid(4), ukbd(4), ums(4), usb(4)

HISTORY
     The uhidev driver appeared in NetBSD 1.6.  This manual page was adopted
     from NetBSD by Tom Rhodes <trhodesATFreeBSD.org> in April 2002.
