Two OV5640 sensors on the iMX6 CSI-2 Interface

I'm quite new to the MIPI standards and have started working with camera sensors using the i.MX6 CSI-2 interface.  Is it possible to connect two OV5640 sensors to the chip's CSI-2 interface?  I understand the need for unique I2C addresses for control.  I would like to capture simultaneous as well as individual stills/video from the two sensors.  I appreciate your insights and advice.

Hi R

you can connect up to 4 cameras to the MIPI CSI-2 interface.

For this you have to either use a MIPI CSI-2 hub (if anything

like this already exists) or multiplex the four streams in an FPGA.

Each camera in this case should use a different stream

identifier (stream 0-3). See attached file.

Best regards

chip
