TVE200 is a new Direct Rendering Manager driver being queued for Linux 4.15.

The TVE200 DRM driver is for the Faraday Tech TVE200 "TV encoder" block. This mini driver was written by Linus Walleij of Linaro.

One of the products using the TVE200 is the since-discontinued D-Link DIR-685 802.11n wireless router that has a built-in display.

This driver is present now in the latest drm-misc-next pull request for landing in DRM-Next then in turn Linux 4.15 come a few months down the road.

This drm-misc-next pull also has S6E63J0X03, OTM8009A, and Seiko 43WVF1G panel support, among other DRM driver improvements.
