10 bit, but yes, I am sure. It is an embedded camera system, in fact, I get
the data stream even before it is handled to any ISP for further processing
of the picture. In the end, the ISP will convert the data stream to another
format, but I have to simulate some of the algorithms that will be
implemented in hardware.
