Endurance enables DisplayLink in Open Source

DisplayLink logo DisplayLink's solutions allow users to easily add monitors to almost any PC without the need for expensive and power hungry graphics hardware. Endurance Technology has worked closely with DisplayLink to bring this technology into the embedded product market. Endurance offers a wide range of professional services to help customers make the most of DisplayLink's technology.
