    Logo Requirements and Related Documents


    This is a comprehensive checklist; however, this is not a standalone document.

    To adequately review and design for the compatibility and design requirements for the Windows Logo Program for hardware, you must also have available these documents:



    • Windows Driver Development Kits (DDKs) including DDKs for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 family, available at http://www.microsoft.com/ddk/

    All DDK topic references in this document are based on the current Windows DDK, published in conjunction with the Windows XP operating system.

    Tip: Search for the cited topic name in your local version of the DDK documentation.

    • WHQL Test Specifications, available at http://www.microsoft.com/hwdq/hwtest/.

    • Industry specifications, such as ACPI Specification, PCI Local Bus Specification 2.2, USB 1.1 and related device class specifications, MMC-2, and so on.

    Logo Requirements and the Windows HCTs


    When you install the Windows XP HCT 10.0 and HCT 11.1, this document is automatically installed with the HCT documentation and the WHQL Test Specifications, and the PC and server design guides.

    The HTML Help (.CHM) versions of these documents are designed to work interactively.

    We recommend that you review the Windows Logo Program requirements with the HTML Help versions of the test specifications and design guides for easy cross-referencing among the requirements and implementation guidelines.

    TIP: If you download these documents from the web, place them in the same directory to ensure that the cross-reference links work. All links work automatically if you are running the versions installed with the Windows HCT 11.0 and HCT 11.1.

    Conventions Used in This Document

    Requirement References

    Windows Logo Program requirement citations

    Specific requirements for a general, system, or device are defined for the Windows Logo Program for hardware using this format:

    WL-#

    General Logo Program requirement, where # represents a number defined in Chapter 2.

    A#.#.#

    Logo Program requirement for PC or server systems, where # represents a number defined in Appendix A.

    B#.#.#

    Logo Program requirement for devices and buses, where # represents a number defined in Appendix B.

    Terms


    Add-on device

    Refers to devices that are traditionally added to the basic PC system to increase functionality. Examples include audio, networking, graphics, small computer system interface (SCSI) controller, and so on. Add-on devices fall into two categories: devices built onto the system board and devices on expansion cards added to the system through a system-board connector, such as Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI).



    Client

    Refers to versions of the Windows XP operating systems running on desktop or mobile PC systems.



    Exception

    Indications cases in which a requirement may not apply.



    FAQs

    Standard subsections for each system or component in Appendix A and Appendix B, listing clarifications and corrections published for Windows Logo Program requirements. FAQs are defined in subsections numbered #.#.5 in the appendixes.

    FAQ are also listed at http://www.microsoft.com/winlogo/hardware/ and published in the Windows Logo Program News available by subscription on the Windows Logo Program web site.

    Future Requirement

    Standard subsections for each system or component in Appendix A and Appendix B, listing new features or capabilities that are planned for future versions of the Windows Logo Program for hardware. Future requirements are defined in subsections numbered #.#.R in the appendixes.

    Future requirements are also listed at http://www.microsoft.com/winlogo/hardware/ and published in the Windows Logo Program News available by subscription on the Windows Logo Program web site.

    Industry Standards

    Standard subsections for each system or component in Appendix A and Appendix B, listing required industry specifications, upon which operating system support is based. These references include Internet links to the source document.



    Mobile PC Note

    Indicates that an exception or additional information is defined for Mobile PC systems.



    Must

    Indicates that the statement applies as a requirement for the Windows Logo Program.



    Quality

    Standard subsections for each system or component in Appendix A and Appendix B, listing requirements for testing the system to ensure Windows compatibility and reliability.
