I'm planning to use a i.mx6 in an digital imaging application. The intention is to transfer image data from a FPGA device to the i.mx6 memory using the parallel CSI ports. The format of the image data is a bayer pattern. In the documention I can see that the IPU can receive bayer pattern and generic image data. I'm not shure how the IPU really handles the bayer data and what's the difference. Does the IPU unit contain any bayer demosaicing hardware ? Is the bayer data automatically converted to RGB or YUV when transfering to memory ?
Can anybody help me ?
Thanks and best regards
