Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio

If you need Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio, then you can download it at the bottom of this post.

This driver is considered as a patch or hotfix for some audio problem that arise is some PC / Notebook that run some of Microsoft Operating Systems. This software package here is distributed by HP, but i believe it can be used by any hardware that need this driver, since this is the hotfix developed by Microsoft itself.

This package contains the Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio. For more information about this driver, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 888111, "Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) High Definition Audio class driver version 1.0a available for Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Windows Server 2003, and Microsoft Windows 2000."

However, I pick some of the important notes about this driver here:-

UAA describes a class driver initiative for computer audio solutions that are supported in Microsoft Windows operating systems.

An audio device that is UAA-compliant can rely on the operating system for driver support. Therefore, hardware vendors do not have to supply a custom driver for a device.

A High Definition Audio device complies with the Intel High Definition Audio specification. A High Definition Audio device connects to the PCI bus or to the PCI Express bus. A High Definition Audio device can reside on an internal audio card, or the device can be part of an integrated motherboard chip set.

In the spring of 2004, Intel Corporation released the first hardware that includes High Definition Audio-compliant solutions. The update that is described in this article supports the Intel High Definition Audio-compliant hardware.

The audio industry solution that has been used in the past is the AC’97 Audio codec. UAA includes the following improvements for users, OEMs, and hardware manufacturers.

Improvements for users

  • Easier installation of audio peripherals
  • Easier installation of audio drivers
  • Better system stability
  • Better performance
  • Glitch-free audio
  • Improved security of the content that you want to help protect
  • Fewer vendor-supplied drivers
  • Less need to upgrade drivers
  • Guaranteed basic audio support for UAA-compliant devices

Improvements for OEMs and hardware manufacturers

  • Less software development, testing, and support
  • Less exposure to product support calls and to product returns
  • Easier phase-out of products that are at the "end of life"
