A20-SOM-EVB Camera experiments – it’s alive but still need love to start working correctly


We have fun now with the camera on A20-SOM-EVB, first it was going in standby mode few milliseconds after we enable it, then Dimitar managed to fix this but the allocated memory was too small and the buffers were overflow and freezing the Android, after two days of fun tweaking this or that finally something like picture comes out, you can see above.

Still lot of noise, no focus, and some digital signals mixed in the video stream but at least we see the camera is alive 🙂

There are tons of registers to initialize and hack so to be continued …

    Congratulations! These are great news.
    I hope drivers to be avaliable in the debian dristro and the code accessible for the people who need to tune the kernel to their needs :).

    Do you think it would be possible to marry a ADV7611 hdmi receiver to the a20 – this would allow interessting video streaming solutions.

    Hi, awesome work on the A20 SOM. I was wondering how good is the parallel 24-bit input for the camera on the A20 boards.. Does the current software for A20 support video input through an interface other than CSI/USB?
