Use external MCLK for camera but without using the 'MCLK' of SOM

Hi,

Can I use an external OSC clock to drive the camera MCLK pin but without using the MCLK signal from the NX module? If OK, then what’s the advantage of using the MCLK from NX module?

Thanks.

hello diverger,

please check Sensor Software Driver Programming.
the default mclk value is extperiph1, and the maximum frequency for extperiph1 is 24 MHz.
please use an external clock source if a frequency greater than 24 MHz is required,
thanks

I think it means I can use an external clock source even the clock needed is below 24MHz, right? That is, just left MCLK from the module floating.

Thanks.

hello diverger,

yes, that’s correct.
