MIPI CSI-2 cameras for OMAP4 and other MCU

After patiently looking for cameras for my latest OMAP4 circuit board, I have actually found a few CMOS sensors that can fit on it.

As you may know, the OMAP4 has no parallel port for the image sensor (like most processors do) but has instead a serial/differential CSI-2 connector that is (it seems) less popular among CMOS sensor manufacturers.

So it seems that DigiKey has a few of them: http://search.digikey.com/us/en/cat/sensors-transducers/image-camera/1966754

I have only seen Omnivision sensors with that kind of connector and you have to open every datasheet in order to find if it has or not.
The bad news is that Omnivision does not release the full datasheet for its product so it’s difficult to know the exact details on how to use their cameras.

Any luck, anyone?

  1. I know that OV5642 and OV5650 have CSI-2 connectors. The later is being used in the iPhone and has a 5MP image sensor with a good quality.
