LA CANADA, Calif., Feb. 17, 2017 — Fabless semiconductor company Si-Ware Systems Inc. has unveiled an iPhone-compatible spectroscopy chip that could expand the use of mobile devices and wearables.

The company is said to be marketing its NeoSpectra Micro chip directly to device manufacturers and planning mass production for the fourth quarter of the year.

The company is demonstrating an iPhone case with an embedded chip that can analyze food and drinks for things like caffeine and gluten levels. Because the chip measures 18 × 18 mm, it could be built directly into phones and wearables.

Si-Ware is expected to give access to developers within the next couple of months. The company is hoping that spectrometers will eventually become a common feature of consumer electronics, much like accelerometers and gyroscopes.
