(Will use) Yocto-based custom image.
I’m studying autonomous/swarm drones. Recently I purchased VIM4 for a try, and I’m wondering what camera hardware is available for its MIPI-CSI interface. Are the camera modules in your shop (IMX214, OS08A10) also connected to VIM4? Are they the only available, or is there a compatible 3rd-party camera?
I also saw the thread about 8MP camera support in android 11. To be clear, I’m not asking about software compatibility since I will use a Yocto-based custom image and patch the kernel (and device tree) for myself.
If the only available cameras are the above two (which seems to be right), then it’s a deal-breaker to me since those are both rolling-shutter. And because raspberry pi (or Tinkerboard) have more diverse options in this, I should consider just sticking to them. For instance, vision components manufactures RPI-compatible MIPI-CSI camera modules for a diversity of sensors, and they are selling through Mouser.
However, I think your hardware is small and very nice, and perfectly fits my use case in all other directions.
So what I want to ask you now is, do you have any plan for:
- camera hardware with global shutter image sensors, like IMX296/OV9281, or
- a conversion FPC to raspberry pi’s 22pin or 15pin MIPI-CSI port?
Thanks a lot for replying.
