Hi,

is it possible to implement a software MIPI to USB bridge to let a ov5640 camera sensor be controlled over USB?

does it exist any kernel module example on how exchange MIPI data trough UVC driver?

or is it possible only using a hardware bridge like Cypress CX3?

thank you for the attention

best regards

Andrea

Thank you Gary and Igor,

I suppose it would be a little slow, I would just figure out if it's possible and how to do it

I'll take a look to uvc-gadget, today project site seems to be up

Hi Andrea

I believe it is possible to implement a software MIPI to USB bridge as CX3,

but seems performance wiil be low due to software latencies.

Best regards

igor

Hi Andrea,

You should have a look at the uvc-gadget:

linux/gadget-testing.txt at master · torvalds/linux · GitHub

Note that the project site seems to be down today:
