KnowItAll Software Developer Kit (SDK)

Integrate KnowItAll Solutions with Your Software 


Take full advantage of access to Wiley’s world’s largest databases & fast search engines direct from your instrument software.

We know your users need access to comprehensive spectral databases direct from their instrument software as they need answers fast. We also understand that most customers prefer that their software also link out directly to other programs like KnowItAll that they use for direct data transfer.

As a Wiley partner, we want to help you create a seamless experience for your customers and offer our partners the option to implement our SDK. 

Wiley's KnowItAll Software for Windows® offers integrated solutions to analyze, identify, and manage multiple types of spectral and chemical data in multiple file and instrument formats. Our SDK allows you the ability to take advantage not only of our vast spectral reference collections but also our advanced search technologies optimized for speed with our patented technology to optimize results (“Optimized Correction Technology”).


Below is the KnowItAll SDK currently available. 


The KnowItAll Spectrum Transfer SDK

Provides a means to transfer spectral data directly from your software into KnowItAll for IR & Raman spectral identification.

Spectra can be transferred using either shared memory or with a shell function to execute a command line.
