Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers specifically target the needs of embedded platform developers, offering a robust driver designed for the US15W chipset on the Woodpecker / Robin Module.

Toradex does provide a default driver and/or the configuration files to rebuild the driver for the following Operation Systems:

Windows XP Professional --> http://wiki.toradex.com/index.php/Windows_XP_on_Lily_and_Woodpecker#Intel_Embedded_Graphics_Driver

Windows Embedded Standard --> http://wiki.toradex.com/index.php/Windows_Embedded_Standard_(Woodpecker,_Robin)#Intel_Embedded_Graphics_Driver

Windows CE --> http://wiki.toradex.com/index.php/Windows_CE_(Robin,_Woodpecker)

Important Note

The Intel Embedded Media and Graphics Driver (EMGD) is enhanced over the previous Intel® Embedded Graphics Drivers (IEGD) by providing higher performance and improved usability. Therefore Toradex recommends to use the EMGD driver instead of the IEGD.

Please read the User's Manual and the Specification Update provided by Intel.

IMPORTANT (BIOS): Depending on the selected amount of configurations the size of the Video BIOS may grow from 64k to 128k. Note: A 128k Video Bios is currently not supported from our System BIOS. If you program a 128k Video BIOS to the flash, the system will never come up again (until you replace the BIOS)

Download and Install the Configuration Editor

To create your own driver for special display configurations you can use the IEGD Tool from Intel.

Note: IEGD requires an Microsoft Windows Environment to run the Configuration Editor. You can install the IEGD Tool on your Woodpecker Module or on a development host. With the IEGD Tool you will generate the driver for your display. After generation you have to install the driver on the target.

Open the download page for the Intel Embedded Graphics driver (IEGD): http://edc.intel.com/Software/Downloads/IEGD/

Download and open the IEGD driver.

You will find more information about the Intel Embedded Graphics Driver here: http://www.intel.com/design/intarch/swsup/graphics_drivers.htm

After installation you will find a shortcut on the desktop. Open the IEGD Tool. Make a new configuration and then a new package with your configuration. Generate an Installation. This will create a zip file with all necessary drivers.

Please take reference to the IEGD User's Guide for additional information about How To install the generated drivers to the desired Operating System.

For a detailed instruction on how to generate LVDS Graphic Drivers visite the IEGD LVDS Configurationsecion.

Change Driver Settings from inside an Application

If you are looking to change driver settings (brightness, contrast, ...) directly from your application take a look to the IEGDGUI Sources, found in the SDK folder. The SDK folder is found in the Driver Package generated for Windows XP.
