i.MX8MDQ Reference Manual :

"Support up to 4 data lanes..
• Support 5M pixel at 15 fps, 1080p30, 720p60, VGA at 60 fp "

Hi Igor,

Thanks for a replay but I need the details.

Pixels come in following:

Line 1: Gb B Gb B Gb B ......... Gb B

Line 2:  R Gr R  Gr R  Gr ......... R Gr

Line 3:  Gb B Gb B Gb B ......... Gb B

Line 4:  R Gr R  Gr R  Gr ......... R Gr

....

Line N-1: Gb B Gb B Gb B ......... Gb B

Line N: R Gr R  Gr R  Gr ......... R Gr

P1, P2,P3, ... P638, P639, P640 are 8 bits respectively. LSBs is also 8 bits.

Which format of MIPI CSI is best for this? I will not use LSBs.

James

Hi,

Now I understand that I can use RAW8 mode but how I can drop LSB byte at every fifth pixel. 

How to use user defined mode?

Okay there is a limitation on a MIPI. How about DMA that can skip a pixel?
