I am completely new to Qualcomm Family and especially with Snapdragon Systems. But i am trying to get information and research into the possibility of using a Snapdragon processor for a application which involves camera interfacing.
The Camera I am trying to interface is from SONY with LVDS output. I am told for other processors, with parallel camera interface that I need to convert the signals from LVDS to Camera Parallel Interface. I intend to run Linux Kernel and a basic operating filesystem with this application.
For Snapdragon and Camera Interfacing, especially with new/ custom cameras, I have some questions and doubts about the system in regards to the Software Part of Snapdragon.
- Is it possible that Qualcomm Snapdragon Technical Support can give support especially with the drivers that would be required for the camera to work either in Linux or in Android ?
- Do i have to use any chipset, like a signal converter or a Camera Sensor Bridge to interface the camera with the sensor bridge ?
- Is it possible to use the generic drivers for camera once there are signal converters in place ?
- Are there any applications or development/ evaluation kits for Sony Cameras with Snapdragon ?
I would really appreciate the help and support from the Developer Community at Qualcomm.
Thanks and Regards,
