Hello Anusha,

You can try one USB Camera and one MIPI CSI it should works.

Hi Sir,

imx8 m mini has only one csi controller, but we want to have two cameras(both ov5640) one as front camera and one as back camera.

My doubt is whether we can use two cameras on different i2c buses with one csi controller, we have a gpio to select the camera one at a time by making it high and low.

Hi Sir,

I have already gone through the link, but imx8 m mini has only one csi controller where as the soc mentioned in the link has two csi controllers from the processor.

My doubt is whether we can use two cameras on different i2c buses with one csi controller, we have a gpio to select the camera one at a time by making it high and low.
