I would like to connect two cameras to iMX8m Plus SOM on custom own board. According to Toradex Verdin iMX8m Plus SOM specs, both MIPI CSI can support up to 266 MHz pixel clock.
I estimate my camera to be approximately 124 MHz pixel clock.
Is it possible to have a 4k dual camera input if these camera clock requirements are met?
Are there any other considerations that need to be taken into account
Camera : 3840x2160x15 = about 124MHz pixel clock.(Ignore the margin region)
SOM : Verdin iMX8M Plus V1.0D
Hi @p-uchi , you should also consider the VPU encoding capabilities, which seems to ve be limited to 1080p60 in the i.MX8MP. Otherwise you will have to use SW accelaration which could be very very slow / 100% CPU usage.
Thank you for your response.
I can understand what you are advising “The video encoder is very slow without VPU”.
If speed is not an issue, is it theoretically possible to use dual 4Kp15 cameras (3840x2160x15) with imx8mp?
Our application is only to receive 4K video for image processing, not for recording or displaying.
