Ocean Optics has released an update to its OmniDriver Spectroscopy Development Platform. The platform-neutral Java-based OmniDriver Version 2.20 provides a simple interface for programming of USB spectrometers, accessories, and devices in optical sensing systems, and is available with an optional set of spectral processing math algorithms. New features have improved the platform’s high-speed data acquisition, spectral processing, data analysis, data visualization, and data transfer options.
With native libraries included for a variety of Linux, Macintosh, and Windows operating systems, OmniDriver users can develop robust control applications without knowing Java; the wrapper libraries provide and interface for most languages to link against. The OmniDriver’s platform- and spectrometer-independent programming means the same code works with any Ocean Optics USB spectrometer. With Version 2.20’s new SpeedTest feature, users can determine the maximum performance possible for a spectrometer model on the Windows operating system.
