      • Camera engineering

      • In-Depth, Application-Specific CCD and CMOS Camera Design. State-of-the-Art and Close to the Customer
          • Client-specific engineering at all levels of camera design

          • Camera development is
            Kappa’s core task. Our ambitious development department, with highly qualified developers, continually drives our technology topics forward.

            With our technological portfolio we can implement specific client requirements through the entire engineering process. We select appropriate interfaces and sensors for your application and can offer adapted circuit design. In the area of signal processing we can adapt the pre-processing in the camera to your specific application with specific microcontroller/FPGA programming. And of course we also offer specific housing for your requirements and tailor camera software to your needs. We offer precise requirements management that allows your task to be transformed into technical specifications for our cameras.
          • Rugged - extremely robust cameras according to customer requirements

          • The complete electrical-mechanical design of our cameras for extreme environments is subject to a specific hardening process.

            Innovative partner for more

            If your task goes even beyond our current technological portfolio we go one step further - together with you. With our long experience in complex projects we can realistically assess the feasibility. We keep on developing with the future in mind.

            Platform strategy

            Our camera profiles also serve as a technological platform for cost-efficient realization of specific camera solutions.
