    Is there a chip or circuit design or something which would
    allow me to connect a USB interface to a linear CCD chip.

    Yes, I'm still trying to work out the best way to build a
    cheap (non astronomical) spectroscope...
  2. Why not just use a difraction grating and a web cam? All the interfacing
    and hard parts are done for you.

    Yes, I think you have a good point there, thanks.

    You could use a flatbed scanner too. These calibrate at start and end of
    scan against black and white strips; this would likely need to be emulated.

    Thanks for the idea, but a scanner is too big for my application.
