Newark extends range of test and analysis products with Broadcom’s compact spectroscopy

Broadcom’s compact, versatile and reliable spectrometer modules are suitable for industrial sensing and mobile analytics in numerous applications.

Chicago – January 12, 2022: Newark, an Avnet Company and global distributor of electronic components, products and solutions has enhanced its test and measurement product portfolio with the addition of a new range of miniature spectrometers and associated evaluation kits from Broadcom. Field and lab-based engineers can now access the industry’s best-in-class spectrometers from stock for same day shipping at Newark.

Broadcom’s family of compact modular spectrometer devices can be used to take accurate measurements of Ultraviolet (UV), Visible (VIS) and Near Infrared (NIR) light. They are suitable for a wide range of applications including process control and monitoring, medical diagnostics, water quality, material and polymer analysis, color measurements, environmental analysis, light measurements, ramen spectroscopy and quality control. Due to the high flexibility, the spectrometer units are the perfect choice for process analytics and point of care detection.

Broadcom’s USB spectrometers and associated evaluation kits available from stock at Newark include:

  • Qneo infrared spectrometer is designed for reliable and cost-effective industrial integration for high volume integration supporting optical analysis in the spectral range between 950 – 1700 nm. Equipped with an uncooled InGaAs sensor array, the Qneo enables professional sensing with high sensitivity. The ultra-compact design, with a footprint smaller than a credit card, features a rugged setup that combines high resistance in industrial environments, high optical performance, and easy integration featuring several serial interfaces.
  • Qmini range is made up of miniature spectroscopy with integrated electronics for mobile applications and industrial integration covering UV, VIS and NIR ranges. Two out of 6 models feature a wide spectral range from 190 – 1100 nm one UV enhanced, and one sensitivity optimized for Visible Spectrum. The compact design of the Qmini enables tight integration in applications where space is limited, such as point of care detection. Powerful onboard electronics provide easy integration and enhanced spectra processing.

James McGregor, Global Head of Test, Tools and Production Supplies, at Newark said: “Broadcom’s industry leading range of spectrometers and associated evaluation kits are a valuable addition to Newark’s portfolio. Broadcom has successfully achieved high performance in a small form factor with its reliable spectrometer solutions that ensure our customers can take accurate UV-VIS-NIR measurements and complete testing and analysis for a wide range of industrial, mobile, biomedical and scientific research applications much faster.”

Broadcom is a leading provider of semiconductor and infrastructure software solutions. Its infrastructure software portfolio includes enterprise solutions for building, connecting, managing, and securing complex digital environments. Operating on a global scale, Broadcom offers engineering depth, broad product portfolio diversity, superior execution, and operational focus to deliver innovative solutions that enable customers to build and grow successful businesses in a constantly changing environment.

Newark offers an extensive range of test and measurement products to support field and lab-based test engineers. Customers also have free access to online resources, datasheets, application notes, videos, webinars and 24/5 technical support.

Broadcom’s range of USB spectrometers and evaluation kits are now available from Newark in North America, Farnell in EMEA and element14 in APAC.
