Overview

VOXL 2 has 3 camera groups (shown below), where each group has:

  • QTY-2 full 4 lane MIPI CSI ports
  • CCI and camera control signals
  • 8 power rails (from 1.05V up to 5V) for cameras and other sensors
  • Dedicated SPI bus

Quickstart Video

The following video demonstrates setting up the image sensors for the “C11” VOXL 2 development kit:

How to Configure

VOXL 2 ships with the VOXL SDK, which has the voxl-configure-cameras command.

Current Limitations

  • As a means to allow coexistence of OV7251 sensors on CCI3, we are not resetting sensors when they normally should per Qualcomm, to prevent the sensors losing a runtime address swap. This modification is in the kernel, dmesg shows MODALAI HACK where it’s happening.
  • Sensor ID 1 and Sensor ID 5 share a reset line (gpio100), no specific known defects but an area to watch out.
  • Sensor indicies assume all six sensors are in place and will shift when not fully populated.
  • IMX214 resolution settings only support full pixel mode.
  • All camera AVDD rails in this configuration are left on always (2P8VDC) as they’re shared
