PCI VEN/DEV Database


This app is a database of PCI Vendor and Device IDs (VEN/DEV)

It can be used to find out which drivers you need to install to get a  PCI card running based on the VEN/DEV strings that the OS reports, or to identify an unknown device.

The DB is created by parsing the following file:

The database is locally stored on the SD and can be updated online. Before you can use this application, you will need to download a copy. To do that press "Menu->Update DB". I refresh and  upload this database weekly.

No ads.

  • Before  you use this application, you need to download a copy of the Vendor ID  Database. To do that, Press Menu->Update DB. Keep in mind it is  about 1.5MB.
  • To perform a wildcard search, use the percentage sign (%). So typing "HT%" will search for all items which start with "HT". The search is case insensitive.


  • v0.0.1 First public release
  • v0.0.2 Fixed a few string errors.
  • v0.1.3 Added "Hide" button. Changed SD card DB name to android_pci.db3.
  • v0.1.4 Changed minimum OS to 1.6 to support larger screens, fix for FC on DB download.
