Qneo - Compact spectrometer for industrial applications

The Qneo from Broadcom is a compact spectrometer tailored for industrial applications and integration in systems in the near-infrared range.
With its InGaAs detector, it covers the near infrared range from 950 to 1700 nm with remarkable sensitivity.
It is delivered ready for immediate use and has integrated electronics with short sensor readout times.
Broadcom spectrometers are supplied with a software package for general applications.

A special SDK provides a library for the .NET environment and contains sample code for C++, Python, Delphi, LabVIEW, Matlab and others.
All device interfaces (USB, SPI and UART) are supported and can be easily integrated into existing applications.
