For a project that I am working on, I require to convert sub-LVDS from a Sony imaging sensor to CSI-2. I came across the ADV7782 and in its limited datasheet I can only see that it has 5 LVDS inputs (I believe 4 data pairs and 1 clock pair).
I came across this chip because one of the NXP employees mentioned it to a consumer with the same issue as I have.
The only three threads on this forum about this chip all have a comment about it being a NDA part (which I have no problems with). The only question I have about this product is if it supports the sub-LVDS output from any Sony imaging sensor (with up to 4 data lanes).
ADI currently offers only one DVP product capable of bridging between LVDS (OpenLDI) and MIPI CSI-2: ADV7782 ( http://www.analog.com/en/audiovideo-products/analoghdmidvi-interfaces/adv7782/products/product.html ).

I already am aware that the ADV7782 is the only product capable of bridging, but that doesn't answer my question. My question is if it supports sub-LVDS as an input.The sub-LVDS specifications are a differential voltage of 100 to 210mV and an offset voltage of 850 to 950mV.
ADV7782 is an NDA part, it's not supported on the public forum. You'll need to go through Sales rep(FAE)/product line to get support for it.
I forwarded my email to the local sales email address last friday. Weird that a support manager forwarded me to this community for my question regarding the only NDA product.
Let me check with part specialist on this.
