I am trying to make my own Orin NX and Nano carrier board that will support up to 8 cameras using multiplexers. I have read this doc to learn about how to go about synchronization of the cameras.
For synchronisation, the IMX219 doesn’t have a physical start of capturing pin so it seems we need to do this via I2C. I am also supposed to some times communicate with one camera at a time for normal use, but when trying to reset timestamps on the camera it is best to communicate with all cameras at once. This is confusing in terms of selecting addresses of the cameras and hardware configuration. Also, all cameras should have the same clock and I am not sure how to do that, like do I just take one camera clock coming from the jetson and connect it to all of them?
I am wondering if anyone would have advice for how to drive this multiplexer and at what frequency knowing that the max frame rate of the camera is 200 fps.
Any help would be much appreciated as I am in a great deal of confusion,
Thanks in advance!
