Anatomy of an Embedded KMS Driver - Laurent Pinchart, Ideas on board SPRL

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Frame Buffer Device (FBDEV) has been the dominating embedded Linux display API for more than a decade. The tide is turning and Kernel Mode Setting (KMS) is now challenging that dominant position with major embedded vendors adopting KMS as their display API of choice.

Don't be left behind and discover in this talk all about KMS for embedded systems. We will go through the KMS API and learn how to write a KMS driver based on examples from a real embedded system.

This talk addresses kernel developers who want to board the KMS train before it leaves. The API presentation will not require advanced development skills, but basic kernel development knowledge is recommended to understand the KMS driver internals.
