HI,

I am going to design a 3D production base on imx6 series IC,whic inputs 4 channel 1080P30 or P25 LVDS camera's video,then by MAXIM MAX9286 to output MIPI to imx6,and Panorama Stitching,at last,IMX6 outputs 3D display.

Is it neccessary to have 2 IPUs because of the 4 channel 1800p30 camera video in?

I know IMX6Q can do it but the high cost,so can IMX6 DUAL LITE or solo can? Or IMX6 DUAL? I like the lowest cost case.

Thanks.

MAX9286 LINK:

MAX9286 Quad 1.5Gbps GMSL Deserializer with Coax or STP Input and CSI-2 Output - Maxim

Please note that i.MX6 Q and D processors differs only by cores number (4 ans 2 respectively).
So if you suppose i.MX6Q is enough for your purpose and you do not plan to load all their cores i.MX6D is enough as well.
As for i.MX6DL there are more difference between DL and Q including different VPU. i.MX6DL has a bit weaker VPU.
So I suspect i.MX6DL processor may not have enough power for your purposes.

Have a great day,
Victor

Hello Victor,

could you please go into more detail about the differences of the VPU on the iMX6DL and iMX6D?

I was under the impression that the VPU is the same on all SoCs.

Thanks.
