We are under considering surround view system with i.MX6 Solo. Please let me clarify supporting number of cameras.


When we connect camera via MIPI-CSI interface, we are using virtual channels feature.

I think each virtual channel binding to IPU-CSIn port. then, i.MX6Solo only have two CSI port.

I suppose i.MX6 Solo is able to capture simulateously up to 2 cameras,

But, i.MX6SDL reference manual says "MIPI CSI supports up to 4 virtual channel".

Can i.MX6 Solo use four virtual channels simulateously?


I found following thread regarding same topics.

The meaning of i.MX6 MIPI-CSI "virtual channel". 


If iMX6 Solo is able to connect 4 cameras via virtual channels of MIPI-CSI,

How do I configure the GPR13 register? should I change port mapping by each frames?
