Raspberry Pi User Guide

Required hardware

Development kits

Supported image sensors & cameras


  • 15 pin same-side ribbon cable, P/N: MP-FFCA10152003A or similar
  • 22 pin opposite-side ribbon cable, P/N: MP-FFCA05222002B or similar
  • FAKRA Jack to FAKRA Jack coaxial cable

Board modifications

GMSL Deserializer Evaluation Kit

  • Flip the SW5 switches to the ON position - enables I2C communication over the CSI bus

  • Bridge R88 - provides VDDIO to the adapter

GMSL Serializer Evaluation Kit

  • Place a jumper on the J10 connector - enables power over the coaxial cable

  • Bridge R70 - provides 12V to the adapter
  • Bridge R80 - connects MFP2 to the adapter for IMX219
  • Bridge R66 - provides VDDIO to the adapter

Interposers switch configurations are required. According to the pictures presented in the user guide configure the serializer interposer for CAM1 and the deserializer interposer for CAM2

System setup

  • Write the Raspberry Pi latest SD card image on a 8GB (or more) SD card
  • Plug the SD card into the Raspberry Pi SD card slot.
  • Connect the HDMI cable from the monitor to the Raspberry Pi HDMI connector
  • Connect the 22 pins flex cable between the camera and the interposer. Make sure to use the cable with contacts on opposite sides.
  • Connect the 15 pins camera cable between the RPi and the P1 connector of the interposer. Make sure to use the cable with contacts on the same sides.
  • Connect the interposer to the power supply
  • Connect the RPi to the power supply
  • Connect a USB mouse and keyboard to the Raspberry Pi. It's possible to use either a mouse & keyboard combo or a separate mouse and keyboard

Running the evaluation application

Once Linux boots you'll see on the HDMI monitor the Linux desktop and on the top left corner a shortcut to the script named Double clicking on the icon will start the media-ctl configuration script. The script is running in background without any pop ups.

After the script was executed once, one should double click on Qt V4L2 test Utility icon to start the video capture application. A window like bellow should open and the play button should be pressed to start the capture.

The capture window should look like bellow.

Power off sequence

  • Open a terminal and type sudo poweroff. This will safely power off the Raspberry Pi and ensure that the SD card is properly unmounted
  • remove the 5V supply from the Raspberry Pi
  • remove the 5V supply from the interposer

Getting the software

The GMSL Linux kernel drivers, the complete Linux distributions for the supported processing platforms, and software user guides can be found on the Analog Devices GMSL github repository.
