Design Assurance in Accordance with Strictest Requirements

Standardized processes for certified cameras in safety-critical applications

We master the required processes for developing cameras to be used in regulated markets, creating all necessary prerequisites for certification and approval in the process. Kappa is one of very few camera providers worldwide with comprehensive expertise and profound experience in this field.

Design Assurance in camera development is a central requirement in our demanding target industries. Numerous applications are subject to comprehensive, specific quality requirements and safety levels, the fulfillment of which must be documented according to strict directives and standards (i.e., functional safety).


We offer the following standardized design assurance procedures in hardware and software development:

Domain     Safety Levels     Others
Automotive (ISO 26262) QM ASIL-A ASIL-B/C ASIL-D   IEC 61508
General (IEC-61508)   SIL 1 SIL-2 SIL-3    
Aviation (DO-178/254) DAL-E DAL-D DAL-C DAL-B   SE ARP 4761
Defense (DO-178/254) wie Aviation DAL-E DAL-D DAL-C DAL-B  





AQAP 2110

Railway (CENELEC 50126/128/129)   SIL-1 SIL-2 SIL-3    


Safe Development organized in V-Models

Of course, our hard- and software development processes align carefully with the requirements of our target industries which are mapped in their respective V-models. Some examples are the DO-178C V-model in aviation, with the strictest safety requirements of all, or the ISO 26262 V-model for functional safety in automotive applications. Most important: every level is clearly separated within the organization and independently verified.

It goes without saying that our design assurance processes are modified for the requirements in question. For less regulated uses, naturally we offer common, simpler development processes as well. You always profit from our fundamental expertise and diligence in this field.
