Dear Sir,

 

I'm developing with your i.MX6 solo lite and with your EK board.

I want to connect the camera signals(8bit parellel) to i.MX6 solo lite.

 

Here are some questions:

 

1. What's the difference between how to connect one 8bit camera sensor and how to connect two 8-bit sensors on i.MX6 solo lite hardware reference manual?

 

On the page 612(section 16.4 Principles of Operation), the below are:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The CSI can support connection with the sensor as follows.

• To connect with one 8-bit sensor, the sensor data interface should connect to CSI_DATA[9:2].

• To connect with one 10-bit sensor, the sensor data interface should connect to CSI_DATA[9:0].

• To connect with one 16-bit sensor, the sensor data interface should connect to CSI_DATA[15:0].

• To connect with two 8-bit sensors, the sensor data interfaces should connect to CSI_DATA[7:0] and CSI_DATA[15:8].

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Assume1)

- I interfaced two camera(each camera is 8bit) with i.MX6 solo lite to meet our buyer needs.

- I assigned the CSI_DATA[7:0] to one camera and CSI_DATA[15:8] to another camera.

- But, there was some changed.

- Our buyer changed the camera number from two to one.

 

Shoul i change CSI_DATA[7:0] to CSI_DATA[9:2] like above?

Without hardware change, i should use CSI_DATA[7:0] because of other pins (CSI_DATA9, CSI_DATA8) have already been assigned for other purpose.

 

Please, let me know how to use the CSI_DATA[7:0] without change.

 

Best & Regards,

Kwangbog HAM
