Porting Guide: Simplified integration of dart BCON for MIPI cameras into Yocto-based embedded systems
- 12 Sep 2022
Our new Porting Guide on this topic step-by-step describes how to integrate Basler dart cameras with MIPI CSI-2 interface into platforms based on Yocto. It is designed for the NXP® i.MX 8M application processor series and is thus relevant for system-on-module manufacturers or system integrators who want to quickly and easily add vision to their systems. The Yocto Project® is an open source collaboration project that provides templates, tools and methods for Linux-based systems.
To simplify the development process, the sources required for porting are provided as GitHub meta-layers that can be seamlessly integrated into existing Yocto projects. Each layer has its own documentation with integration and compilation details and includes components from pylon Viewer, pypylon, pylon SDK, GenTL Producer, Basler Kernel Patches, and Basler Camera Drivers. By clearly summarizing and bundling all required resources, the porting process is considerably facilitated.
