Can someone explain what is the difference between external and internal vsync for the i.MX53 IPU's CSI / camera sensor interface.


The reference manual is not too clear about it. Searching for "external vsync" does not find any paragraph explaining the difference between internal and external vsync.

bit 5 External VSYNC enable. This bits select between external and internal VSYNC.

1 External VSYNC mode.
