    Do I need to account for 8b10b encoding in MIPI timing?


      When calculating all of the timings in the MIPI receiver configurator, the CSI clock seems to be calculated as:


      V-Total x H-Total x FPS x bitsperpixel


      E.G. with 640 x 480 x 60fps x 8bits, with 1 lane, the CSI clock is calculated to be 73.73MHz exactly.


      This seems surprising, as I would have thought there would be 8b/10b encoding, and perhaps some SoF / EoF / CRC bytes included too.


      Why doesn't the CSI clock need to take these extra bytes into account?
