i.MX6UL Hardware implementation of a 8 MP camera

It is possible to implement a MIPI CSI 2 Camera into a custom i.MX6UL Board although the processor only supports 24Bit Parallel?

I saw already some examples with an OV6540 which is using 2 Lane MIPI CSI - 2 Interface.

Since I am only working on the hardware side I want to ask: If there is any possibility to connect 4 Lane MIPI CSI 2 Cameras(SONY IMX219) with the processor. 

Do I need to use a bridge like the TC358746AXBG and use the full 24 Bit Parallel Camera Port? 

Are there any suggestions from some hardware engineers with some better knowledge about this topic?

Kind regards,

Tom

Hi Tom

you are right, as i.MX6ULL has not MIPI CSI - 2 Interface so external MIPI CSI-2 to

parallel port converter is needed. TC358746AXBG or probably fpga can be used.

Thank you very much!

May you can answer me another question?

Is it possible to boot an embedded Linux from SD Card while using an SPI Bus? Since I want to use the Camara and the SD Card parallel this seems to be the only solution?

kind regards

I think it is not possible to boot SD Card using an SPI.
