Intel® Embedded Graphics Drivers 10.4
for Embedded Intel® Architecture
Product Overview
Intel® Embedded Graphics Drivers (IEGD) specifically target the needs of
embedded platform developers, offering a robust alternative to drivers
designed for the desktop and mobile market segments. With a flexible
architecture, extending to the video BIOS, and UEFI video driver, this driver set
speeds customer time-to-market by allowing OEMs and system integrators
to customize configurations in-house, while maintaining a competitive
performance profile. Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers are validated only on the
specific integrated processors, chipsets, system controllers, operating systems,
APIs, and sDVO port devices listed in this document.
IA Silicon Intel® Embedded Graphics Drivers 10.4 were validated
on platforms using these graphics chipsets, system
controllers, and processors:
• Intel® Atom™ processor D400/500, N400/500 series
• Intel® System Controller Hub (SCH) US15W/US15WP/
US15WPT + Intel® Atom™ processor Z5xx

Intel® Dynamic Display Configuration Technology
• Simplified specification of customized flat-panel timings
IEGD and this technology lets embedded customers expand usage models
beyond typical desktop and laptop configurations through numerous advanced
display configuration capabilities, including:
• Allows display resolution to be set with both DisplayID and EDID
with LVDS displays
• Multi-GPU multi-monitor mode, whereby a PCI or PCI Express*-based graphic
card’s display outputs operate concurrently with integrated graphics
— Now supported with the Intel® SCH US15WP/US15WPT with Intel® Atom™
processor Z5xx (new for IEGD 10.4)
— Allows for up to six independent displays to be rendered simultaneously
• Dynamic display detection and enablement according to configurable
display port order
• Setup of conditional behavior when EDID and/or non-EDID panels
are detected
• Advanced configuration for clone display mode on different-sized displays
• Use of integrated display ports in conjunction with PCI- and PCI Express*based graphics card outputs
• Ability to display POST messages and boot to DOS in clone display mode
(VESA modes only)
Cross-Platform Feature Consistency
Modular architecture enables similar functionality across supported Intel®
platforms and operating systems. This flexibility reduces time-to-market
through customer familiarity and ease of portability to future embedded Intel
platforms with integrated graphics. Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers support a
wide range of applications including, but not limited to:
• Embedded in-vehicle infotainment systems running Moblin Linux, driving
dual independent LVDS flat-panel displays and utilizing MPEG2 hardware
video decode acceleration
• Point-of-sale systems running desktop Windows XP,* driving dual
independent LVDS flat-panel displays
• Kiosk systems running Windows XP Embedded,* driving dual independent
displays (i.e., analog CRT with digital DVI flat-panel displays)
