You’re probably familiar with our leading-edge vision products, and access to first-class support that comes with them, but did you know that our skills portfolio also includes custom design services?

We offer extensive hardware and FPGA design skills, software development expertise and efficient prototyping and manufacturing. Our expertise and 30+ years’ experience in the industry can help you find the best and most cost-effective solutions for your application.

You can call on our R&D team for customization of standard products as well as full custom solutions; our one-stop-shop offering means you’ll deal with the same expert engineering team for the duration of your project. Leveraging our knowledge and experience for your project can bring your concept to life in a shorter time and with less cost.

Skills and Capabilities

Our design engineers can assist with system level, schematic, PCB and FPGA/VHDL design. We have experts in developing software under Windows, Linux, QNX and macOS. Long relationships with trusted partners mean that we can quickly turn around assembly, testing, prototyping and manufacturing.

Custom Camera Solutions

Our BlueBird video adapters and our range of Harrier cameras and camera interface boards are versatile products that offer users plenty of flexibility. However, we can tailor and optimize our products specifically to meet the needs of your application. We also offer full custom video converter solutions by modifying existing designs or providing full custom converter boards, including housing when required.

Custom Embedded Systems

Our embedded system products are usually designed into an OEM system and include industrial computers for specific applications, optical readers and sensor systems. We can support you through your entire project from planning and designing to prototyping and manufacturing. Our team will work with you to find the optimal solution depending on your budget, timeframe and volume requirements.

Custom Frame Grabbers

We’ve customized our boards for numerous applications to meet additional functional or system requirements, including software and firmware modification for applications with additional requirements, and hardware feature changes such as custom connectivity, custom I/Os and CAN bus. We can also design boards for embedded form-factors including cPCI Serial, PCIe/104 and XMC.
