Optics play an essential role in modern electronics. Projectors, Computer Vision, Photo and Video cameras, LIDARs, Lighting systems, and many other devices require vast knowledge in the design and development of optical parts for these devices.
Hardware For Software is here to help you design complex optics. We have experience working on projects with clients from all over the world and optics projects are no exception.

  • We offer the following services:
  • technical requirements formalization
  • design, tolerances calculation and verification, thermal analysis
  • design documentation releasing and amendments, 2D, 3D
  • design considerations for standard parts application
  • prototypes assembling (or assembling supervision)
  • prototypes testing, include lab testing
  • manufacturing support and supervision
We can also perform assessments for your optical system. Complete testing for complicated optical systems is not that easy, but our engineers' experience and knowledge gained over many years in the optical industry help to manage cost and optical specifications optimizations.

Optical systems which we could design for you:
  • 1. Imaging optics:
  • IR and UV
  • Imaging optics
