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 OV9655 1.3 Mpix camera module.

Enable power

  1. set VAUX3 to 2.5V
  2. enable camera clock (how?)
  3. load driver (modprobe ov9655)
  4. where can we see the data?


we need a driver for the TPS61050
