Customizable Camera Platform

Start with an ISG custom camera platform to get all the benefits of a custom camera, with fast time to market, at low cost for OEM volumes.

Highly-Integrated Imaging Platform, Dual Remote (HIP DR)

Custom GigE Camera with dual remote sensor heads

Customizable Camera Platform Parlec Example

Very low-cost custom GigE camera platform features two remote sensor heads with image sensors of your choice. A high-performance Linux processor, large FPGA and associated memory systems enable us to integrate multiple imaging and system functions into one, high-performance industrial camera system designed specifically for your OEM application.
From this custom camera platform, ISG will quickly develop and deliver OEM cameras tailored to your needs, at very low cost in OEM volumes. Engineering development charges and minimum order quantities apply.


MIS Control Custom Camera
The HIP DR platform supports Aptina 1.3 MP and 5 MP CMOS sensors for low-cost applications. Alternatively, we can design sensor boards for any CCD or CMOS area camera or line scan camera sensor. Other customization possibilities include two customer-specific analog or digital I/Os, customer-specific image processing algorithms, and built-in system control capabilities using the on-board workstation-class CPU.
