Embedded systems are increasingly composed of IP cores and chips assembled to create advanced features. Display devices are no exception and comprise components that get reused from system to system. With their roots in the the desktop world, Linux display APIs haven't been developed with this architecture in mind and don't maximize flexibility and code reusability. The Common Display Framework will reshape the display architecture in a modular and more future-proof way. It creates separate drivers for distinct components in the display pipeline and orchestrates communication between them. This talk will present ongoing work on CDF and will discuss future directions for userspace API enhancements. This talk is addressed to developers who want to learn about tomorrow's Linux kernel display architecture. Familiarity with the basic display concepts is recommended but not mandatory.
