Does iMX6 MIPI CSI-2 support camera sensors with "non-continuous" clock mode?

Hi everybody,


I'm going to start my custom mipi camera sensor.

My transmitter supports "non-continuous" clock mode (clock lane goes in LP11 during H and V blanking).


I made a test with SabreLite and ov5640 mipi: connecting oscilloscope on sensor output clock, it looks continuous every time (exept when it leaves power down state).


Do you know if iMX6 MIPI CSI-2 supports "non-continuous" clock mode?

Looking on "MIPI Alliance Specification for Camera Serial Interface 2 (CSI-2)", I found the following sentence:

"All CSI-2 transmitter and receivers shall support continuous clock behaviour on the Clock Lane, and optionally may support non-continuous clock behaviour".

many thanks.
