This section describes how device drivers can interface an Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) device. ACPI devices are defined by the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) Specification.

For information about how to use a Windows Driver Model (WDM) function driver to enhance the functionality of an ACPI device, see Supporting ACPI Devices.

For information about how device drivers that comply with the requirements of Kernel-Mode Driver Framework (KMDF), User-Mode Driver Framework (UMDF), or Windows Driver Model (WDM) can evaluate ACPI control methods, see Evaluating ACPI Control Methods.
