Using LVDS as an input (rather than output) on i.MX6 Quad core

Hello,

 

I've got a question folks.


I would like to use the i.MX6 as a means of taking in data (via LVDS input) and writing it to SATA HD.

 

I need to know whether the i.MX6 LVDS ports can be configured as inputs rather than outputs.


Currently the LVDS ports on my Sabre Lite board are meant to be used for writing to a display (i.e. LVDS used as output).  Could the LVDS be re-configured to be used to take data in (input) from an FPGA or ADC chip for instance ?

 

If not, how can I take digital data in at high speed (in parallel) using the i.MX6 chip.  Ideally I'd like to use LVDS due to its noise immunity.


Thanks very much.
