We would like to use a camera sensor with RAW16 output format, and we have the option of using the TX2 or the Xavier.
Checking on the TRMs, it looks like RAW16 is not supported by hardware in the TX2 (only a RAW8x2 merged format that I think it doesn’t have software support based on this https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/1042926/jetson-tx2/how-to-receive-pixel-format-raw16-by-nvcsi-vi-/ thread) but it does on the Xavier.
However, checking at software level, it looks like RAW16 is not supported yet on the VI and CSI drivers. Do you know when is this support going to be added to the kernel? Is there a plan to add it at short term?
Any thought about how to use a RAW16 sensor either with the TX2 or the Xavier would be really helpful.
