We present the design for the 340 Mpixel KMTNet CCD camera comprising four newly developed e2v CCD290-99 imaging sensors mounted to a common focal plane assembly. The high performance CCDs have 9k x 9k format, 10 micron pixels, and multiple outputs for rapid readout time. The camera Dewar is cooled using closed cycle coolers and vacuum is maintained with a cryosorption pump. The CCD controller electronics, the electronics cooling system, and the camera control software are also described.
