Configuring the parallel camera IO pins.

I'm helping design a board based on the i.MX6Q processor.


The design has a parallel camera that will use the Bayer/Raw data mode to receive 16-bits of camera data.

I have planned to use the CSI0_DAT0 thru CSI0_DAT15 inputs, but in looking at the Sabre for Smart Devices reference schematic, the connection of the OV5642 parallel camera uses CSI0_DAT12 thru CSI0_DAT19 for an 8-bit input stream.  When not using all 20-bits for input, should I be using the high bits, or the low bits?


The i.MX6Q reference manual skims over the various modes and leaves out a lot of details on how to configure and hook up camera inputs, if there is a document that describes this, I'd appreciate being pointed in the right direction.
