TrueSense Imaging Custom GigE Camera Platform


Custom GigE Cameras using the TrueSense Imaging KAI family of CCD sensors

TrueSense Imaging Camera

This low-cost custom GigE camera platform supports the TrueSense Imaging (Eastman Kodak) KAI family of CCD image sensors. Choose your sensor format, from 16MP at 8 fps to 1MP at 120 fps. A high-performance Linux processor, large FPGA and associated memory systems enable us to integrate multiple imaging and system functions into a 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 TrueSense Imaging camera platform supports multiple I/O combinations including GigE Vision, CameraLink, 1394b FireWire, CoaXpress camera interface, and support for monitors. Other customization possibilities include customer-specific image processing algorithms and built-in system control capabilities using the on-board workstation-class CPU.
