MIPI CCS defines standard functionalities for implementing and controlling image sensors, enabling rapid integration of sensors. CCS Static Data, introduced in CCS v1.1, is a standard format for information about sensors, including model-specific registers (MSRs), that can be parsed by device drivers. One driver can interact with many different image sensors, determining their characteristics by referring to their CCS Static Data files. This allows vendors and system integrators to add support for new image sensors and update MSRs without making driver changes.
CCS Tools helps developers take advantage of CCS Static Data without writing their own tools or debugging multiple implementations developed by others. This reduces complexity for vendors and system integrators, lowering costs and accelerating time to market for mobile and mobile-influenced devices.
