No MIPI DSI ouput at the i.MX 8M Mini

I am currently working on generating any kind of MIPI DSI signal out of the MCU “i.MX 8M Mini”, placed on a developer board. By default the output on the developer board is LVDS, provided by the MIPI-LVDS bridge SN65DSI83. In order to obtain the MIPI output directly, the IC LVDS bridge chip SN65DSI83 was physically removed and shorted via flying wires. In order to test the MIPI DSI output, I am using currently an existing driver file “panel-raydium-rm67191.c” (please look in the attachment). Regarding the kernel, I did the following adaption:

  • I disabled the LVDS bridge in the dts file

  • I added the MIPI DSI to the dts file in correspondence to the Raydium RM67191 as follows:

    &mipi_dsi {
    status = “okay”;
    fsl,clock-drop-level = <2>;

    panel@0 {
    #address-cells = <1>;
    #size-cells = <0>;
    compatible = “raydium,rm67191”;
    reg = <0>;
    reset-gpios = <&gpio4 7 GPIO_ACTIVE_LOW>;
    dsi-lanes = <4>;
    video-mode = <2>;
    width-mm = <68>;
    height-mm = <121>;

    port@0 {
    reg = <0>;
    panel0_in: endpoint {
    remote-endpoint = <&mipi0_panel_out>;

    ports {
    /delete-node/ port@1;
    port@1 {
    reg = <1>;
    mipi0_panel_out: endpoint {
    remote-endpoint = <&panel0_in>;


    &iomuxc {
    pinctrl-names = “default”;
    imx8mm-var-som {
    pinctrl_lvds: lvdsgrp {
    fsl,pins = <

    pinctrl_mipi_dsi_en: mipidsiengrp {
    fsl,pins = <

  • I changed two configuration in the file my_defconfig:


Once I looked in the boot serial ouptput, I noticed the following failure messages which cause the booting to stop and no output to be present on the MIPI port:

  [drm] Supports vblank timestamp caching Rev 2 (21.10.2013).
  [drm] No driver support for vblank timestamp query.
  imx-drm display-subsystem: bound imx-lcdif-crtc.0 (ops lcdif_crtc_ops)
  imx-drm display-subsystem: failed to bind 32e10000.mipi_dsi (ops imx_sec_dsim_ops): -517
  imx-drm display-subsystem: master bind failed: -517

What can be the causes of these failure messages and how can I resolve them?

It should be noted, that no display panel is connected to the developer board (resulting in,
no connection to the MCU).

Many thanks in advance

Best regards


A Verdin development has no SN65DSI83 chip and DSI signals are exposed on X48 connector. So I assume you are talking about DSI to LVDS adapter. Is it correct?

Could you please specify a HW revisions of

  • Verdin module

  • Verdin development board

  • DSI to LVDS adapter
