Interfacing CSI-2 imaging sensors


I am developing a custom PCB with sony imaging sensors. Since I saw that the TX2 has dedicated camera I2C ports, I wonder what those are for. I dove a bit into the documentation and many questions rose regarding my PCB design.

In the documentation in states that there are a couple of GPIO pins available for power sequencing, camera reset, power on/off, etc. Does this mean that all the camera pins (apart from the oscillator (since it’s more than 24MHz) and power) can be routed directly to the TX2? There is no need for an additional microcontroller?

You do not need a dedicated micro controller. You can configure your camera via i2c and the GPIOs.
