NeoSpectra is a business of Si-Ware Systems (SWS). SWS is a fabless semiconductor company that is fostering silicon innovation. NeoSpectra is the brand given to SWS’ Optical MEMS business unit.
The sensors are based on Fourier Transform InfraRed (FT-IR) technology, which is a standard technique used in laboratory based spectrometers that offers a wide spectral range for the best qualification and quantification of materials. The sensors used patented Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) technology, which allows for a Michelson interferometer to be created monolithically on a MEMS chip.
Today NeoSpectra sensors operate in the Near-Infrared (NIR) from 1,350 to 2,500 nm. This wavelength range goes up to the highest point of the NIR and is the widest range versus comparable solutions.
