Increasing number of Auto and robotic use case require enabling display as early as possible. U-boot is a widely used bootloader which supports large number of SoC's and provides a framework for writing video drivers and displaying images while device boots up. This talk will cover how one can add support for a new video driver in u-boot and enable display during bootup. Display controller basics and u-boot boot flow will be covered briefly, before moving into details on how to write a new video class driver using U-boot's Video Class framework and how to display images from different boot media at U-boot prompt or during bootup. It will then cover details regarding enabling early splash screen for displaying image at U-boot's SPL binary and ensuring flicker free experience during hand-off to further bootloader binaries and Linux kernel. Different design considerations related to storage media, memory addressing, and hand-off will be covered to give an idea to user on platform specific changes that need to be done to support early display using U-boot.
