Saves OEMs time and money in developing custom software
Initially developed for OEM use in embedded system applications, Ocean Optics (www.OceanOptics.com) has introduced the new SeaBreeze OEM Driver Software. This compact, fast and flexible software saves OEMs time and money with a basic starting platform that can be customized, by developers, for their own unique applications and instruments.

Without the typical Java run time load of other platforms, SeaBreeze delivers faster processing and is compact enough to be built directly into spectral libraries smaller than 500k. Its superior speed is achieved by minimal overhead between requesting and reading out data. SeaBreeze communicates with devices using different protocols and buses and easily accommodates the addition of support for new features within existing devices. The portable software design enables SeaBreeze to be adapted to new platforms simply by providing a native implementation of the bus interfaces for the target.
Intended for use by experienced C/C++ programmers, SeaBreeze provides a starting point for developers that would otherwise have to create an equivalent device interface because existing options are too large or complex for their application. It supports most Ocean Optics’ USB spectrometers for Linux and Windows operating systems, and is extensible so developers can add required enhancements to increase functionality and device compatibility.
Ocean Optics’ dedicated OEM engineering team provides expert integration support to assist OEMs with their development challenges. As the result of specifying and delivering over 100,000 custom-system spectrometers since 1992, the OEM team is able to address any mechanical, software, optical, or electronic integration need.
