MIPI camera for Wandboard

Postby svassilev » Fri Apr 27, 2018 5:59 am

Hi,

Will this camera work with Wandboard: https://shop.technexion.com/cam-ov5645.html? If not, what are my options, other than https://www.e-consystems.com/iMX6-wandboard-camera.asp?

Thanks in advance,

The TechNexion OV5645 works on the Wandboard.

TechNexion edm-imx6 modules are 99% compatible, so if everything else fails, the TexhNexion BSP should be usable.

Hi Tapani,

Can you please provide more information about this camera support? You said the TechNexion OV5645 works on the Wandboard, but with which kernel version do you mean?

With a 4.1 kernel, I am getting these errors:
ov5640_read_reg:write reg error:reg=300a
camera ov5640_mipi is not found
ERROR: v4l2 capture: slave not found!

Thanks, Clay

OmniVision has discontinued the OV5640 and OV5642 camera modules, which is why most of the cameras that were once offered for the Wandboard are no longer available.
The TechNexion module has the newer OV5645, which is almost identical to the OV5640 except its JPEG encoder has been removed, as it was typically not used.

Support for the OV5645 has recently been added for Yocto Rocko and Sumo, but earlier versions of Yocto do not directly support this newer camera module.
