How to control the camera


  • this page is a stub since we don't have a driver yet
  • the camera needs power & clock to operate I2C
  • therefore it is not visible by i2cdetect
  • the camera will capture images after power on reset in some default mode (if clock is switched on)

The camera (if installed) is a OmniVision OV9...

Enable power

  1. set VAUX3 to 2.5V
  2. enable camera clock (how?)
  3. load driver (modprobe xxxx.ko)
  4. where can we see the data?


we need a driver for the TPS61050
