    The Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) initiative, in combination with PC audio device technologies, is key to delivering a simple yet compelling user experience with current and future versions of the Microsoft Windows operating systems. Devices that meet UAA hardware requirements can take advantage of Microsoft-provided class drivers that provide complete driver support for audio devices for Windows. This paper provides design guidelines for meeting UAA hardware requirements for USB audio, IEEE 1394 AV/C audio and Intel HD Audio. This information applies for the following operating systems: Microsoft Windows Vista, Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Microsoft Windows XP, and Microsoft Windows 2000.
