What do you call this then?

The development of such a driver basically driven by one thing: the 
information about how to program this device. Registers/firmwares/program-

In a second, yet important, step, you need to be know with which kind of 
(already existing or not) API you want to use this device.

In your Email there is no indication of both of this. Please clarify.
