CSI and DSI connect straight to the GPU, so need drivers on the GPU side. If/When we sell cameras/LCD's they will be provided with a binary blob that supports them.
Ok. Sad to hear a binary blob will be needed, but many thanks for the info.
I expect cameras and LCD will require daughter boards to adapt then to the correct pinout. They always do!
I anticipated that, yes. One will somehow have to provide the LCD / camera with the correct voltages to operate and match the pinouts. For the last step, the pinout of the DSI / CSI-2 sockets would be required information.
More DIY related, the cheap and ubiquitous iPhone 3/4G screens seem to use DSI, and driving them should not be too difficult (electrically speaking). Still, I can surely understand if there is no time or interest on the side of the Foundation to provide a working binary blob until they offer LCDs themselves.
Even though, the solution in this thread
may be a very good one.
