How do I find the Product ID and Vendor ID of my USB device?

The Vendor and Product ID are required when developing a device driver in VISA Driver Development Wizard. This article shows you how to find this information for your USB device.

USB Device Viewer

Microsoft has a free utility, USB Device Viewer, that provides a graphical interface for users to browse all available USB controllers and USB devices present on the system. USB Device Viewer offers a convenient method for obtaining device information, such as Product ID or Vendor ID.
  1. Install USBView.
  2. Launch USBView.exe from C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Debuggers\x64.
  3. Find and select your USB device from the configuration tree. The USB Vendor and product information (idVendor and idProduct) are displayed in the viewing window on the right-hand side.

Online Database

If you do not have the USB device on hand, you can also check the External: USB ID Database. Search for the USB device name and the database will provide the Vendor (VID) and Product ID (PID).
