Enable CSI in IPU_CONF causes board to hang when using Android.

Branched to a new discussion

i am trying to get a new camera running on MX6Solo. I have the CSI running, and able to capture single-shots using a small console capture program (no gui, no preview). I.e. the route from camera to /dev/video0 seem OK.


I have also enabled the CSI test mode to generate a checker-board. I see this too when I capture with my little console program.


However; If I start the camera app on the phone, now involving Android and possibly preview, I get a kernel stop. A stop with no messages, no dump, nothing, it simply hangs!


The lights go out just after I do "ipu_cm_write(ipu, reg | IPU_CONF_CSI0_EN, IPU_CONF);" (ipu_common.c).


The strange thing is that my small capture program works ok. So I *suspect* it may be in regard with the preview or something else caused by Android.

  • I have tried to log interrupts, and it does not seem I am getting any interrupts after the 'enable' of CSI0, so I don't think it is an interrupt hanging. Maybe it is a bad DMA setup? (however I need a good idea of how to look into that).
  • I have tried hardcoding IPU_CONF to just IPU_CONF_CSI0_EN (to disable as much IPU flow as possible), but it still dies.
  • I have tried skipping the "enable"-line of code, and then the code does NOT crash or hang.


So: In short: I enable CSI0, and the platform stops!


Any ideas are appreciated!
