Abstract: We developed at CeSAM (Centre de donnéeS Astrophysiques de Marseille) from LAM a new Virtual Observatory compliant Exposure Time Calculator. This new ETC has been designed to facilitate the integration of new sites, instruments and sources by the user. It is not instrument-specific, but is based on generic XML input data. It is used in several project implementations (EUCLID, EELTs, OPTIMOS) covering a wide wavelength range (from NIR to UV). This paper focuses on the spectroscopic aspects of the tool and defines the structure of the application. It emphasizes the interoperability of the ETC and shows the added value for end users. Equations will be described in another paper in preparation
