Progress Update: LVDS + HDMI & Yocto Project

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Today run some tests and we decided to share our progress with you!




This video shows one UDOO QUAD driving two displays at the same time. On the left we have a LVDS screen (15,6″ – resolution 1366×768) which shows a H.264 video playback, while on the right we have a HDMI screen which shows a full HD realtime 3D render.

This is power!


UDOO Yocto Project


Our team has chosen to distribute Yocto file system with QT graphical interface to supply a concrete example of complete embedded system you can adopt in UDOO board.

There are a lot of advantage in choosing Yocto-Linux+QT:


  • Fast booting;
  • Support to GPU and VPU;
  • Possibility to use a standard IDE (Eclipse, Qt Creator, etc) to create a power and complete user interface;
  • Flexibility and fast development cycle to create new application (or to modify an existing one to fit project specifications);
  • Support to GPU and VPU;
  • Full control of every feature of the target system you create (everything can be rebuilded from source);
  • Open Source License based on GPL;


As stated in main Yocto Project web site: “The Yocto Project is an open source collaboration project that provides templates, tools and methods to help you create custom Linux-based systems for embedded products regardless of the hardware architecture.”

Yocto is free, easy to get started with, and powerful to work with. It combines the power of a linux-based O.S. with a complete and full documented development environment (including emulation, debuggers, Application Toolkit Generator, etc.). Moreover Yocto was born to support multiple architectures including ARM, PPC, MIPS, x86, and x86-64, to guarantee code portability. The project also provides an Eclipse IDE plug-in and a graphical user interface to the build system called Hob.

May the Source Be With You.
