Android MIPI camera support

Postby jcsistemas2001 » Sat Jul 26, 2014 3:46 am

Hello All,
I setup a MIPI camera using the Wandboard expansion connector.
- A translator voltage board was build and setup accordingly.
- The I2C communication with the camera seems OK.
- The probe function return device found (at ov5640_mipi) without error.
I understand that we need HAL support to use cameras in Android. Anyone knows if this support is built-in in the 4.2.2 image?
Thanks
Julio
