Optical Design and Camera Design Services

NPI Vision System Design Services

We can help you bring your camera from the idea stage to mass production. We like to talk with you at the earliest proof of concept stages to help you optimize design decisions. We can also get involved at later stages. We support:

  • Optical Design, Optimization, and Analysis in Zemax / CodeV.
  • Image Quality Testing and Test Design with ImaTest.
  • Mechanical Design Review in AutoDesk Inventor / AutoCAD.
  • NPI Project Management and Design-for-Manufacture.
  • Production Line Test Equipment Configuration.

Design and Select Your Optics

We start by talking through system-level trade-offs so that technical requirements and feasibility are fully considered. 

When necessary, we provide optical design analysis services. We utilize Zemax, Imatest, and AutoDesk to optimize system performance. We specialize in:

  • Wide Angle Imaging Optics
  • Design-for-Manufacture
  • Stray Light Optimization
  • Ruggedization
  • Athermalization
  • Camera Module Active Alignment

Camera Optics Design and Development Support

Camera Customization

We align technical requirements with commercially-viable options to help you meet your cost targets. We search through our network of 50 different lens manufacturers for off the shelf solution. If an off-the-shelf solution does not exist, we can lead custom and customized lens design efforts.

We support with adjacent optics 

  • Illumination Systems Design
  • Opto-Mechanical Design
  • Mechanical Design

Prototype Your System

We have experience with all major image quality ISO standards and participated in the IEEE P2020 automotive image quality working group. We can help with: 

  • Defining image quality testing standards. 
  • Creating custom test charts.
  • Setting up production-level alignment stations. 
  • Implementing quality control procedures.

We can make introductions to expert 3A ISP tuning service providers and embedded electronics design manufacturers.

NPI Project Management for Camera Hardware

Optimize for Manufacturing
