MIPI CSI-2-compliant cameras are popular in mobile and mobile-influenced devices because of the specification’s ability to handle high image resolution over fast links with low-power consumption. SoC designers can accelerate their design process by integrating the software drivers to make initial development easier and directly control boot-up sequences. This presentation by Licinio Sousa of Synopsys describes how to use the existing host-side V4L2 API and V4L2 subdevice interfaces to ease the integration of a CSI-2-compliant camera with an existing system. This approach allows designers to easily change their camera without having to make any changes to the CSI-2 host driver.
