I`m newbie, so plz help me  :)

As I understand from http://docs.cubieboard.org/expander_boards there is
Quote2. OV7670 interface: for connecting OV7670 Camera Module

Is it possible to connect another cameras? What interfaces are supported?

As I have "googled" there is CSI interface.
There are three CSI:

  • CSI-1 Serial interface

  • CSI Parallel

  • CSI-2 Serial Interface

For example raspberry pi has CSI interface, but what CSI? Parallel or some serial?

I have founded some cameras with low level iterface (I suppose CSI is low level interface):

https://aw-som.com/product_info.php?products_id=44 5MP camera
https://aw-som.com/product_info.php?products_id=45 2MP camera
https://aw-som.com/product_info.php?products_id=46 0.3MP camera

Seems they are CSI-2 interface cameras. It is true?

Are there any cameras with sensors 1/2" and bigger with some interface that I can connect to some ARM dev board, such as Cubieboard v3?


I have cubietruck and CF7670-v3 (10 pin) CSI camera. Would anyone guide me how to proceed as i am new with the cubieboard
