Linux platform integrates graphics stack
The pre-integrated graphics stack within Wind River Linux includes GTK, Qt, X.Org and the Wind River Tilcon Graphics Suite, using the latest hardware and graphics drivers, including Intel Embedded Media and Graphics Driver on Intel Atom processor with OpenGL and PowerVR driver on Texas Instruments’ (TI) AM35x, AM37x, AM389x TI Sitara ARM microprocessors and OMAP35x processors with OpenGL ES.
The stack also bundles the latest versions of popular graphics applications, while Linux Standard Base (LSB) certification assures compatibility with all LSB-compliant third-party applications. This latest update pack — Wind River Linux 4 Update 2 (Wind River Linux 4.2) — is said to add significant new functionality, usability improvements and hardware support, empowering UI and HMI designers to create rich graphics with a smaller footprint, faster performance and lower power consumption than do-it-yourself alternatives.
"Wind River’s introduction of a fully integrated graphics stack delivers significant benefits to customers and enables important open source technologies for the industry," said Vasu Jakkal, senior marketing manager of low power embedded software, Intel. "With Intel’s Embedded Media and Graphics Driver, the latest release of Wind River Linux will give device manufacturers across a wide range of market segments the technology they need to rapidly build secure, reliable, graphics-optimized next-generation devices at a lower cost."
