Hi Support team,


I want to connect 2x camera (12 bit bayer) to iMX6 processor. In the reference manual, Table 37-2 (Data Formats Supported By The Camera Port) comments only about 9-10 bit/value and 16 bit/value.


In order to connect a 12-bit  camera output, Can I use the following hardware connection

IPUx_CSIx_DATA08 ----> CAM_DATA_0,

IPUx_CSIx_DATA09 ----> CAM_DATA_1,


IPUx_CSIx_DATA11 ----> CAM_DATA_3,

IPUx_CSIx_DATA12 ----> CAM_DATA_4,

IPUx_CSIx_DATA13 ----> CAM_DATA_5,

IPUx_CSIx_DATA14 ----> CAM_DATA_6,

IPUx_CSIx_DATA15 ----> CAM_DATA_7,

IPUx_CSIx_DATA16 ----> CAM_DATA_8,

IPUx_CSIx_DATA17 ----> CAM_DATA_9,

IPUx_CSIx_DATA18 ----> CAM_DATA_10,

IPUx_CSIx_DATA19 ----> CAM_DATA_11,

IPUx_CSIx_DATA20 ----> CAM_DATA_12,

and other signal HSYNC , VSYNC, PCLK, MCLK to the IMX6?


Can I use the rest of the signal associated with the camera interface (IPUx_CSIx_DATA00 to IPUx_CSIx_DATA07) for alternate function?
