  • Hi DanSimp, 

    Is there a mandatory need of doing the HLK tests and  CERTIFICATION for any hardware to be compatible with the Windows 10 or can we just do the basic signing of the drivers for that device.

    Sensors/Sensor hub is one of the example.

    PLz throw some light !

    Rgds,

  • For Windows 10, certification is not mandatory.  You can attest to the functionality and reliability of your hardware and receive a signed driver. You can read more about the Hardware Compat program for Windows 10 here:https://msdn.microsoft.com/library/windows/hardware/dn922588(v=vs.85).aspx
