Allegro IVD Smart Camera Series

The Allegro IVD Smart Camera is JADAK’s intelligent solution for original equipment manufacturers (OEM) who need to accelerate machine vision tasks in their designs—an equipped Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) unburdens the host computer of processing high-quality images and ultimately saves valuable processing power that reduces overall system latency.

The Allegro Smart Camera is designed specifically to support the in-vitro diagnostic (IVD) and Surgical fields by:

  • Performing standard pre-analytical tasks on a single vial or rack of vials
  • Improving the accuracy of test results by closing inefficiency gaps caused by human error
  • Improving speeds during pre-analytical and analytical phases of testing
  • Providing enhanced high-resolution microscopy
  • Enabling multiple camera coordination for surgical visualization and omnivision scenarios


Allegro IVD 6 MP Smart Camera provides the ultimate in screening a rack of diagnostic vials with enhanced accuracy and precision. Its a highly customizable unit: frame rate, shutter speed, and LED illumination are programmable, and the M12 lens mounting configuration is designed to fit a wide array of lenses and lens focus adapters for customized requirements.

Interfacing with the Allegro camera offers several options, including USB, Ethernet, RS-232, and includes general-purpose input/output (GPIO) on-board capability allowing for maximum flexibility for OEM designers.

The Allegro IVD 6MP Smart Camera is pre-loaded with JADAK’s Clarity™ 3.0 Machine Vision Software, the easiest way to develop machine vision applications with little or no machine vision experience. Additionally, since JADAK is a valued MVTec Image Acquisition Partner this model is compatible with MVTec’s suite of software.


Allegro IVD 2.3 MP Smart Camera has the same functionality as the Allegro IVD 6MP, and is ideal for screening a single diagnostic vial with enhanced accuracy and precision.  The IVD 2.3 MP performs at a reduced speed, also ideal for applications that are less time sensitive.

JADAK is the leading manufacturer for machine vision products and software, offering some of the only engineering talent globally that design specifically for on-board FPGAs which dramatically enhance performance.
