B1.4.1 Device can be enumerated and automatically disabled

Each device connected to an expansion bus must be able to supply its own unique ID. The following are the specific requirements for Plug and Play device IDs:

Each separate function or device on the system board must be separately enumerated; therefore, each must provide a device ID in the manner required in the current Plug and Play specification for the bus it uses.

If a device on an expansion card is enumerated, it must have a unique ID and its own resources according to the current device ID requirements for the bus to which the card is connected. This includes devices that are separately enumerated on multifunction cards or multifunction chips.
