      The Raspberry Pi Compute Module’s cam1 interface has four data lanes. Is it possible to make use of all four data lanes to increase the frame rate of the AR1820HS? Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe your library is only using two of the lanes.

      Just to reiterate, my question is only referring Compute Modules (CM3, CM3+). I realize that the other Raspberry Pi boards only support 2-lanes for data on their camera interface.

      As always, thank you for your help.

      Hello Mark,

      Your idea of increase frame rates by increasing the number of lanes used is correct. That our library is only using two of the lanes is also correct.

      I feel sorry but our MIPI camera module and library was prototyped and built on A&B Raspberry Pi Models, so we might have to wait until the next release to add support for 4 lane in our library.
