Highly-Integrated Imaging Platform Custom Camera


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.

CUSTOM CAMERA PLATFORM Highly-Integrated Imaging Platform (HIP)


Custom GigE Camera

Custom Camera Platform
Very low-cost custom GigE camera platform supports the image sensor of your choice and features a control pad display with programmable LEDs and switches. 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.
The HIP platform supports OnSemi and Aptina 5 MP CMOS sensors for low-cost applications. Alternatively, we can design a new sensor board using the CCD or CMOS area camera or line scan camera sensor of your choice. Other customization possibilities include customer-specific image processing algorithms and built-in system control capabilities using the on-board workstation-class CPU.
