Is there any operating range for the MIPI CSI-2 camera (minimum/maximum) for receiving the MIPI data from the camera sensor?

Which clock frequency (MHz) does the below information refers to?

 

Reference:

As per the IMX datasheet, the following information is provided in the IPU section

 

Fast serial interface (MIPI-CSI2):

 

  • IPU receives 2 components per cycle from the MIPI-CSI2 interface
  • The maximum speed of the interface is:
  • 200Mhz for 4 data lanes configuration
  • 250Mhz for 2 data lanes configuration

 

The maximum bandwidth of the interface is as follows:

 

  • 200Mhz for 4 data lanes configuration (800Mbps/lane, 400MByte/sec)
  • 187.5Mhz for 3 data lanes configuration (1000Mbps/lane, 375MByte/sec)
  • 125Mhz for 2 data lanes configuration (1000Mbps/lane, 250MByte/sec )
  • 62.5Mhz for 1 data lane configuration (1000Mbps/lane, 125Mbyte/sec)
