    8MP and VGA cameras not working

    DanMadill

      I am trying to get the OV8858 (8MP) and OV7251 (VGA) cameras working using Video for Linux (V4L2). I have tried using /dev/video0 through /dev/video13 and only the RealSense cameras work (/dev/video11 to /dev/video13). I can also get a USB webcam working. However, the behavior of the rest of the /dev/video<n> devices is odd. When <n> = 0-3, 5, 6-9, the V4L2 VIDIOC_S_FMT ioctl returns -1 with errno = EINVAL even though the selected pixel format is one of the enumerated pixel formats (I enumerated all available pixel formats, frame sizes, etc. to see what was supposedly supported). When <n> = 4 or 10, the V4L2 API hangs trying to set the pixel format.

       

      The dmesg output shows some errors related to the two cameras:

      I'm using the 12V, 2A wall adapter to power the Intel Aero Compute board mounted in the Intel enclosure kit (as per the illustrated guide), with all three cameras (8MP, VGA and RealSense) attached. Is this a power-supply issue? I'm wondering if 2A is not sufficient on power-up as later in the dmesg log the following messages appear:

       

      [  129.098186] CPU3: Core temperature above threshold, cpu clock throttled (total events = 1)

      [  129.099007] CPU2: Core temperature above threshold, cpu clock throttled (total events = 1)

       

      Or is V4L2 the wrong API to use to access these cameras? I have the very latest BIOS release flashed:

       

      [    0.000000] DMI: Insyde CherryTrail/Intel(R) Aero Platform for UAVs, BIOS Aero-01.00.12_Prod 12/09/2016

       

      and operating system image:

       

      Linux intel-aero 4.4.3-yocto-standard #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Dec 16 18:13:41 CLST 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

       

      My suspicion is that the cameras are /dev/video4 and /dev/video10, but did not come up properly so V4L2 hangs trying to use them (since VIDIOC_S_FMT is the first ioctl to gain exclusive access to the device).

       

      Any assistance would be appreciated.

          Hi Dan,

          Thank you for reaching out and for your interest in the Intel Aero Compute board.
          We would like to investigate this case a little bit more so we can provide a more accurate answer. We will get back to you soon with some more updates. We appreciate your patience.

            Hi Dan,

            We would like to ask some more question about this case.

            1. Did you use the Quickstart guide to setup your development board? If so, are you booting from the USB installer or did you flash the iso to eMMC?
            2. Are you using any external guide or tutorial to connect the 8MP and VGA cameras to the board? If so, could you please share it with us?
            3. Have you tried connecting just one camera at a time? This is just to discard any power supply issue as you mentioned before.
            We’ll be waiting for your reply.

            Regards,
            -Pablo

              HI Pablo,

               

              1. I did use the Quickstart guide. However, I did not build my own image. I downloaded the latest BIOS and O/S image from the Intel Download Centre and used that. I updated the BIOS first. Then I made a USB installer and booted from the USB flash drive to ensure that the O/S image booted (even though I had already checked the MD5 checksum). When that booted successfully, I then flashed the ISO to the eMMC since I was confident that it would boot.

               

              2. I am using an Intel Aero Enclosure Kit for holding the Compute board and cameras. I followed the instructions in the Aero Dev Kit Mechanical Assembly Guide v161101.pdf which I found on Intel's website at Aero Mechanical Assembly Guide.

               

              3. I have not tried connecting one camera at a time yet. I can try that.

               

              Regards,

              Dan

                Hi Dan,

                 

                Thank you very much for the information. I will try to replicate the issue with the same configuration you’re using, I just needed to be sure about this extra information. I don’t have the enclosure at hand, but I believe it won’t be necessary.
                I would appreciate if you could try disconnecting two of the cameras to test with just one at a time. Let me know your results.

                  Hi Dan,

                  Have you been able to test your cameras after disconnecting the RealSense R200 camera? Did you get different results?

                    Sorry to take so long to get back to you. I did try disconnecting the RealSense camera, but it did not change the results. I still could not use the other two cameras.

                      Hi Dan,

                      Don’t worry, I just wanted to compare results. I did some tests too and had a very similar output, I just connected these two cameras and run dmesg | grep –iC 3 “ov8858” and got the same failed messages from your first post. With the other one, the OV7251, I received some ‘success’ lines but many failed messages too. Didn’t use V4L2, though. We will keep investigating and will share any updates, if you keep doing some tests please keep us updated too.

                      Regards,

                          I added a legacy sample app to use cameras through v4l2 with a recipe to build it on intel-aero-samples layer.

                          The sample code should help you to integrate your application.

                           

                          If you want to test your cameras with the sample application, run:

                          sh-4.3# C=10 INPUT=0 MODE=PREVIEW capture_example --userp -d /dev/video0

                          See --help for more info.

                          It generates raw frames but you can convert them. I converted with ffmpeg:

                          ffmpeg -f rawvideo -s 640x480 -pix_fmt yuv420p -i Image-video2-640x480-4.yuv420 test.jpg

                          For example, downward facing camera on my the drone:

                                  I tried Ville's sample program. Here's the output:

                                   

                                  login as: root

                                  Preview mode: 640x480, yuv420.

                                  It didn't work for some reason. I haven't had time to dig into the "invalid argument", but as a side note, my V4L2 code queries the cameras extensively for their capabilities and then tries to use the settings that the cameras indicate they support, and it doesn't work either, even though the same code works with a USB webcam.

                                    Thank you for your update Dan.

                                     

                                    vilvo, do you have any idea of what could have caused the issue that Dan is experiencing with your sample? Have you seen this error on any of your previous tests?
