Avantes, a manufacturer of fibre optic spectroscopy instruments and systems, has released its smallest spectrometer so far, the AvaSpec-Mini.
The spectrometer is smaller than a deck of cards. The AvaSpec-Mini is the first product in Avantes' CompactLine, small integrated spectrometers ideal for OEM applications.
The AvaSpec-Mini will fit almost any OEM application. Despite its size, it still boasts a resolution up to 0.2nm and features a USB 2.0 interface and four configurable I/O ports. It only uses 250mA, which is obtained from the USB port.
