Jetson camera board eeprom

I am tryin to build a camera board to connect the jetson tx2 to 2 cameras. In the pdf it says there is an eeprom needed if more than 1 camera exists. I dont understand why. Can I not manually specify in the device tree settings which camera exists?

In the code where is this eeprom read in the kernel? I dont want to add an eeprom on the board. I am okay modfying the kernel source to write directly to I2C. But I am not sure where this file is.

hello rangerroaming,

according to [Sensor Driver Programming Guide]

Using Plugin Manager if your camera module has onboard EEPROM and has a valid camera ID programmed

please disable the plugin-manager, and specify the sensor device tree you’re using.
thanks

Do you know whre I can find more information about the plugin manager?

hello rangerroaming,

if your camera module board do not have eeprom, we had examples to disable the plugin manager to avoid detection failure in the training video.
