Dear All,

Hello. I tested the preview function on MCIMX6SLEVK.

But, the preview didn't function.

Could you tell me the how to preview on MCIMX6SLEVK?

[Board] : MCIMX6SLEVK (LCD: MCIMX28LCD)

[Camera] : OV5642 module

[Image] : L3.10.53_1.0.0 (PreBuild Image)

[gst-launch command line]

$ modprobe ov5642_camera

$ modprobe mxc_v4l2_capture

$ gst-launch-1.0 imxv4l2src device=/dev/video0 ! 'video/x-raw,format=(string)UYVY,width=640,height=480,framerate=(fraction)30/1' ! imxv4l2sink

[Error message]

Can't get caps from capture device, use the default setting.

Perhaps haven't capture device.

Keita, hi !

   Perhaps the issue relates to the fact, that CSI and EPDC hardware cannot be used
simultaneously, because these two modules share the same pins on the EVK board.

The board file in BSP configures these pins for proper function through DTS.

Use imx6sl-evk.dts for EPDC, and imx6sl-evkcsi.dts for CSI.

  Please take a look at Table 3 (Kernel and device tree configurations) of

"i.MX_Linux_Release_Notes.pdf" in order to select proper demo images.


Have a great day,
Yuri

Dear Yuri,

Hello.

i.MX6SL preview was success on L3.10.53_1.0.0.

But, on L3.14.28_1.0.0, it was not possible to preview. (I tested the my built image and pre-build image.)

Of cause, I replaced the dtb file from imx6sl-evk.dtb to imx6sl-evk-csi.dtb and changed the "fdt_file" parameter.

Please tell me the how to operate the parallel camera(ov5642) on L3.14.28.

I found the difference of boot log between L3.14.28 and 3.10.53.

OV5642 was found on L3.10.53.

Hello,

Does L3.14.28 image supports GUI ? Perhaps minimal image was used ?

Hi Yuri,

I confirmed the IOMUX setting between L3.10.53_1.1.0 and L3.14.28_1.0.0 after boot-up kernel.

But, the difference wasn't seen.

Refer to attached file.

How is it possible to operate OV5642 with L3.14.28_1.0.0?

ov5642 is EOL, 3.14 BSP does not support ov5642 again.

And another important thing is from 3.14, the camera driver adopts the v4l2 subdev framework.

So you may refer to the new ov5640 driver to make the ov5642 to work. It's fairly easy.

Robby

Dear Dongjun Cai,

> ov5642 is EOL, 3.14 BSP does not support ov5642 again.

The OV5642 could operate on i.MX6Q SABRE-SDP with 3.14 BSP.

But, on i.MX6SL EVK, OV5642 didn't operate and wasn't recognized.

>And another important thing is from 3.14, the camera driver adopts the v4l2 subdev framework.

>So you may refer to the new ov5640 driver to make the ov5642 to work. It's fairly easy.

Please give me a detail steps to work OV5642 (Parallel camera).

Keita,

i.MX6Q uses the different camera interface (work with IPU), while i.MX6SL use CSI ( no IPU).

only the latter uses the V4L2 SubDev framework, you can compare the ov5640 source file between 3.10 and 3.14 and then map the change to 3.14 for ov5642.

Robby

Hi Dongijun,

Thank you for your information.

I looked the ov5640.c (in L3.14.28) and ov5642.c (in L3.10.53).

But, a lot of differences were seen.

(It doesn't look fairly easy.)

Please make the driver for OV5642 with L3.14.28 on your side?

Our customer is urging us to fix this issue.

(The "camera support" is described in the release note. So, my customer's project has been started with L3.14.28.)

Keita

Hi Qiang,

Thank you for your great support!

I tested it with your patch.

But, the camera didn't work correctly.

Could you tell me the steps to work OV5642?

Hi Keita, you can use the unit test application to confirm the driver is working fine:

/unit_tests/mx6s_v4l2_capture.out -m 0 -d /dev/video0

By the way, you should not use the mxc_v4l2_capture and IPU related drivers, you should use csi_v4l2_capture driver for iMX6SL.

You can reference to followed picture to build in the drivers, it will be easy for test.
