Braswell (N-Series Pentium) MIPI question

I'm trying to understand the capabilities of the N-Series Celeron/Pentium chips. The datasheet on page 82 states that it can do 5MP "Image Capture," but only 1080p30 "video." What's the difference between "image capture" and "video?" Is there any way to do 1080p60, especially if there's an external FPGA to pre-process the signals?

If not, is there a data pathway from a PCIe peripheral into the video H.264 encoder?

Thanks!

Hello PeteKoziar

Thank you for contacting the Intel Embedded Community.

The video and image capture information that may help you to define the differences between them is stated in sections 9.3.2 and 9.3.3, on page 86 of the http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/datasheets/pentium-celeron-n-series-data... N-series Intel(R) Pentium(R) Processors and Intel(R) Celeron(R) Processors Datasheet – Volume 1 of 3 document # 332092.

On the other hand, any external MIPI implementation should follow the guidelines stated in section 10, on pages from 113 to 116 of the https://www-ssl.intel.com/content/www/us/en/secure/embedded/nda/products/braswell/pentium-celeron-n3... Braswell Platform Design Guide (PDG) document # 540602.

Finally, the H.264 information that may help you is stated on pages 10, 39, and 41 of the https://www-ssl.intel.com/content/www/us/en/secure/embedded/nda/products/braswell/pentium-celeron-n3... Braswell Design In for The Internet of Things (IoT) document # 555139.

Please let us know if this information is useful.

Best Regards,
