Hi community,


I have a question about i.MX6 IPU.

Acctually, our patner consider inputting YUV420 data to IPU CSI.

But CSI does not support YUV420 capture, so CSI should capture YUV420 data as "generic data" in this case.

So I want to know how i.MX6 IPU capture "generic data" to explain for our partner.

Please see my question as below.



I think "generic data" does not have the concept of "line" and "frame" unlike camera data.

So VSYNC and HSYNC signals are ignored to capture "generic data", only pixel clock and data enable are used to capture it.

Is this correct?



I think "generic data" does not have the concecpt of "interval" also.

So if capture YUV420 data from camera as "generic data", all data including intervals are place to memory.

Is this correct?
