Lets evaluate the situation

Lets evaluate the situation

Yoctopuce company started 8 eight months ago, and the online shop is still closed. You may be wondering what we are doing. Well, to make it simple: we are almost there. Organizing and building all this stuff just took twice the time that we expected. More details after the break.

Update (dec 13): Here we are, the shop is now open !

The first beta-test program is almost completed. Thanks to it, we have discovered some little software issues (and some not so little ones on Linux) and a few hardware bugs. Software bugs are fixed, at least the ones we know of. Regarding the hardware, the Yocto-Temperature device has to be lengthened to avoid shifted measurements which were caused by the processor heat. Same drill for the Yocto-Humidity, which has also gained an atmospheric pressure sensor and has been renamed Yocto-Meteo. The Yocto-Servo has an issue with current surges when powered by USB only, and we are still working on it. These few bugs apart, our beta-testers did not encounter any difficulties to use devices and libraries, both seemed pretty intuitive to them. That's a relief :-)

Documentation and libraries are almost ready. Some English translations are missing, but don't worry, they are almost there. Right now, the supported language list is pretty short. Only Javascript, C++, PHP and Delphi are supported, but this list is about to grow. We are working on Objective-C and Command-line versions. Java is also at top of the todo list.

A second beta-test program is about to start, if you are interested in participating, just send us a little mail.

Documentation and libraries should be available on the web site in a few days hours. You still cannot buy products, but at least you'll know how they works and how to use them :-)

All needed electronic components and parts are now stocked, the first production batches have already started. The shop should open before Christmas.

Believe it or not, the production has started

I really love writing blog articles about Yoctopuce, but I still have a lot of stuff to finish before the documentation release....
