QEMU provides virtual hardware devices to the guest system, allowing it to interact with the external world, just like if it were running on real hardware.

Adding devices[edit]

Devices can be added using the -device parameter when starting, or with the device_add command in QEMU monitor (if the operating system and bus support hotplug).

Some devices take modifiers, that may affect the device's behavior and interface.

Example:

qemu -device devicename,modifier1=value1,modifier2=value2 ...
