Shared Components

To improve users' experience when they combine drivers and other software from various vendors, it is important to have some key software components common to all implementations. In order to accomplish this, the IVI Foundation provides a standard set of shared components that must be used by all compliant drivers and ancillary software. These components provide services to drivers and driver clients that need to be common to all drivers, for instance, the administration of system-wide configuration.

Generally, these components are provided to end customers along with IVI drivers and other software tools they acquire from various vendors. Customers acquiring the IVI Shared Components this way generally receive support directly from those vendors. The components are also available via the links below, however no customer support is provided by the IVI Foundation.
