I’m new with the cameras area and I have three questions after reading the following post:
My setup is Nvidia Jetson (lets say Xavier NX or Orin NX) with JP 5.1.1 , an FPD link iii model DS90UB960-Q1 connected to it via i2c and a camera sensor connected to the fpd link 3.
I understand that the FPD link iii is operated via i2c. Why does it needs a special driver and the “regular” i2c driver is not enough in order to operate it?
I didn’t understand if I need driver only for the fpd link de-serializer or I need a driver for the camera sensor as well.
the jetson is connected directly to the de-serializer and not to the camera sensor itself. So how one camera sensor knows how to work with one de-serializer without a suitable driver?
can you recommend some good technical source for newbies in this area such as myself? (I admit I tried to read the dev guide , camera section but I got lost)
last question please:
I found FPD Link DS90UB960-Q1 linux driver in kernel v6.6:
is it possible to “port” it to jp5.1.1 kernel 5.10?
