How to implement the below OV5678 image sensor to STM32L496AG

I want to know if the OV5678 image sensor will support STM32L496AG.?

Well, you probably meant the other way round, i.e. whether the STM32L496AG supports the OV5678 image sensor, right?

However, the sensor OV5678 has a MIPI interface, but the STM32L496AG does not, so it can't work without an interface in between. But even with an interface, i.e. a converter from MIPI-CSI to whatever, the STM32L496 cannot process it, because you get a data stream of 2592x1944 px x 10bit x 30fps = 1.722Gbps. For such fat data streams you need a powerful MPU such as STM32MP1.

Hope that answers your question?

Hi Peter, 

Thanks for the reply, but, actually, we are looking for a 5MP RGB-IR digital camera that supports STM32L496AG with parallel communication.

Yes, I know, you've already discussed this in this thread. But it doesn't significantly change the amount of image data that needs to be processed. With frame rates of 30fps or more, you will hardly be successful with the STM32L496AG.
