Writting linux graphics applications for qualcommHave you been hamstrung by the limitations of vendor provided binary blobs for GPU drivers in your ARM-based embedded systems? How about having access to open-source embedded Linux graphics drivers to write your own graphics applications? If so, this downloadable new whitepaper from Inforce Computing might be helpful.

As you may know, Qualcomm Snapdragon applications processors have a powerful and in-built high-performance Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) for accelerating  2D and 3D graphics-intensive applications. In modern embedded system user interfaces, graphics is increasingly becoming important. Having access to an open source graphics driver enables generation of new widgets, new features, etc., and allows developers to recompile it.
