MX53 Multiple CSI Support in Linux?

Just ran across this comment from FSL in mxc_v4l2_capture.c (init_camera_structure) cam->csi = 0; /* Need to determine how to set this correctly with * multiple video input devices. */ It's causing me trouble since it implies FSL only supports v4l on CSI0 in the 10.2 Android release. Looks like Sabre & EVK may also confirm this since. Comments?

Hello,

Has anyone had any luck finding a patch for multiple CSI support? I am currently trying to get this functionality working myself. I've seen several threads talking about it, but haven't seen any patches posted.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Regards,

Paul

Hi,

Is there any news about multi CSI support ?

I'm working on this problem. But if since there some patch to allow multi CSI I will be pleased.

Cordially

One of my colleagues has the same problem.

Actually, I'm a little disappointed by FreeScale because such a big problem/bug is not fixed even in the latest BSP release.  And even there is no any explicit declaration about it. 

Has anybody fixed the problem of supporting two cameras simultaneously?

Maybe, check ENGcm08316 as it is imperative to get both CSI working. I will try to release patches eventually.

Thank you !

Could you tell me what i should do if I want to use the CSI2 on MX51 ?

I cannot make the CSI2 work normal , the set of  CSI2 is almost the same  as CSI1 now

Our BSP and demo codes only sets by-pass settings for CSI1 for some reason, here is what we usually have:

- reg32setbit(MIPI_HSC_BASE_ADDR+0x800,16);

- reg32setbit(MIPI_HSC_BASE_ADDR+HSC_MCD_OFFSET,10);

Now we need the following register settings to by-pass both CSI1 and CSI2

reg32_write(MIPI_HSC_BASE_ADDR+HSC_MCD_OFFSET,   0x00000F00);            //  @ECA

reg32_write(MIPI_HSC_BASE_ADDR+MCG_MCCMC_OFFSET, 0x0000000C);            //  @ECA

reg32_write(MIPI_HSC_BASE_ADDR+MXT_CONF_OFFSET,  0xF003008B);            //  @ECA

Any updates about getting two cameras working at the same time? Is it possible?

So a solution for automatically switching between CSI ports in a system with two cameras is really quite simple.  In the case of the ADV7180, add an int csi;  in the platform definition then store the .csi parameter into a static var during the probe function of the sensor driver.  Modify your second camera (e.g., ov3640) to store the csi parameter in the field already in it's ov3640_data structure.

Next add and ioctl_g_ext_ctrl function to both sensors and define it in the appropriate .h files (e.g., ./include/media/v4l2-int-device.h)

Modify the kconfig file in the .drivers/media/video/mxc/capture directory to allow selecting two sensors both as modules, Update the platform data for each and place a call to the g_ext_ctrl function in mxc_v4l_open to get the csi number.  Update all of the places in the FSL code where the nasty hard coded parameters are and when your done the mxc_capture file will work the way it should have out of the factory (allow selecting the CSI number for each sensor in the platform data in the ./arch/arm/mach-mx5/mx53-XXX.c file.

Now if only I could get multiple cameras working at  the same time, The first challenge is to get rid of the hard coding of  dma channels and interrupts in csi-enc.c as well as some other oversights.
