Dear Intel developpers,
Would it be possible to capture HDMI video input from the MIPI CSI interface on Joule via a daughter board with the TC358743 chip ?
Like this product for example : http://auvidea-pcb.com/index.php/theme-styles/2014-12-30-22-32-06/b102 B102 HDMI to CSI-2 Bridge (22 p.)
(disgarding the fact it's 22 pins and Joule connector is 20 pins)
The TC358743XBG bridge chip needs some kinds of driver into the Linux kernel.
There are some drivers already available :

Thanks for your very much appreciated answer !
Thank you for your interest in Intel® Joule™ Products.
I haven't personally tried that specific configuration, so I can't confirm or deny if it is possible.
But I found some information that you may find useful, as mentioned in the Intel® Joule™ Module – Datasheet May 2017 http://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/joule-products/intel-joule-module-datasheet...: http://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/joule-products/intel-joule-module-datasheet...:
So as long as you use the corresponding connectors, you may be able to use the characteristics of the MIPI CSI2 interface (as mentioned in https://mipi.org/specifications/csi-2%29: https://mipi.org/specifications/csi-2):
MIPI CSI-2 is the most widely used camera interface in the mobile industry. It has achieved widespread adoption for its ease of use and ability to support a broad range of high performance applications, including 1080p, 4K, 8K and beyond video, and high-resolution photography.
I hope you find the previous information useful.
