    I have a SOMDM3730-20-2780AGCR with linux and I would like to work with a different image sensors connected to it with SPI and parallel interface. I know in most cases it can be done with V4L2, but all of my sensors is not supported.
    In my point of view simpliest (and slowest) way to get data from the sensor - just use GPIO pins connected to the sensors parallel interface (if I correctly understood SOM design, all camera pins connected to GPIO pins, which is accessible to read), on some MCU it working. But I'm totally new with a SOM. May be here is more reliable way to get pixels data? Something like special GPU with DMA?

    Could you please to point me to appropriate documentation.


    With best regards,
