Subject: [RFC v2 00/10] Exynos5 FIMC-IS driver
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.drivers.video-input-infrastructure
Date: Friday 31st May 2013 13:03:18 UTC (over 5 years ago)
Changes from v1
- Addressed all review comments from Sylwester
- Made sensor subdevs as independent i2c devices
- Lots of cleanup
- Debugfs support added
- Removed PMU global register access

This patchset adds a new driver for the FIMC-IS IP available in
Samsung Exynos5 SoC onwards. The camera subsystem in Exynos5 is
different from that of Exynos4 and before.
In Exynos4, the FIMC-IS is a sub component of the camera subsystem which
takes input from fimc-lite and does post processing of the image and passes
it to the fimc-capture which writes to the output DMA.

But in case of Exynos5, the fimc-capture IP is removed and instead a more
powerful fimc-is takes the role of giving scaled image output via DMA.
FIMC-IS internally has two scalers for this in addition to other
post-processing components like dynamic range compression,
optical distortion correction, digital image stabilization, 3D noise
and face detection.

FIMC-IS firmware can directly control certain sensors and the
sensors compatible with the fimc-is will be termed as fimc-is sensors.
This patchset adds support for two such fimc-is sensors - s5k4e5 and
These sensors are controlled exclusively by the fimc-is firmware at
They provide only SRGB unscaled output which will reach fimc-is
via mipi-csis and fimc-lite. The color space conversion, scaling and all
post processing will be then done by the fimc-is IP components.

The fimc-is driver operates in the following manner:
The sensor subdevice created by this driver will be used by the exynos5
media-device's pipeline0 which connects it with mipi-csis and fimc-lite.


The output bayer image dumped by the fimc-lite subdev into memory is fed
into the ISP subdev of fimc-is driver. For that the pipeline1 of exynos5
media-device will look like this:


The isp subdev accepts bayer input buffer at its OUTPUT_MPLANE. It will
do a set of post processing operations and passes it on-the-fly to the
scalers. The two scalers can give two different scaled outputs which can
be used for recording and preview simultaneously. Both scaler-codec and
scaler-preview dumps DMA data out through its CAPTURE_MPLANE.

This patchset adds basic version of the driver which accepts
bayer input data and provides 2 different scaled outputs with most of
the post processing blocks disabled.
