19.1. Introduction

The OMAP44XX family of chips contains the Imaging SubSystem (a.k.a. ISS), Which contains several components that can be categorized in 3 big groups:

  • Interfaces (2 Interfaces: CSI2-A & CSI2-B/CCP2)
  • ISP (Image Signal Processor)
  • SIMCOP (Still Image Coprocessor)

For more information, please look in [1] for latest version of: “OMAP4430 Multimedia Device Silicon Revision 2.x”

As of Revision AB, the ISS is described in detail in section 8.

This driver is supporting only the CSI2-A/B interfaces for now.

It makes use of the Media Controller framework [2], and inherited most of the code from OMAP3 ISP driver (found under drivers/media/platform/omap3isp/*), except that it doesn’t need an IOMMU now for ISS buffers memory mapping.

Supports usage of MMAP buffers only (for now).
