Can IPU convert RGB stream to YUV?

Hi everyone!

We are thinking to connect a  RGB cmos camera module to iMX6.

Because VPU accepts only YUV format, we think we need to convert RGB data to YUV.

Can we use IPU module for this purpose?

In detail, does anyone know the possibility of the following data path?


Camera => (RGB) => CSI in IPU => (RGB) => IC in IPU => (YUV) => IDMAC => Memory.


I'm referring to Figure9-5. on page 464 of i.MX6Solo/DualLite Reference Manual.


If the above path is not possible, we think we need additional device outside iMX6 or we need to do the conversion (RGB => YUV) by software in iMX6


Thanks in advance for your advice.
