This week, we are implementing a program suggested by one of our customers: Using the Windows API to adapt the brightness of a monitor depending on the ambient light. Most laptops already do that, but desktops don't because they don't have a light sensor. We are going to use a Yocto-Light-V3 to determine the ambient light.
We recently decided to systematically test the behavior of Yoctopuce modules when they are submitted to high temperatures. We therefore had to build an enclosure able to heat up and maintain a relatively precise temperature. This week, we show you how we built it.
Today we present a new tool which you'll find very useful if you use Yoctopuce modules in a protected network environment, such as behind a NAT filter or a firewall. If you have ever wished to remotely connect to your devices for an interactive session, for instance to modify the configuration, you will be glad to know that this is now possible... even for YoctoHub-GSM!
The guys at Yoctopuce love rc modeling and particularly everything that flies. Unfortunately in Winter, the sun goes down early and flying sessions at the end of the day often finish up in the dark. We decided to build a small lighted landing runway that we could control from a smart phone.
When you perform endurance tests with electronic circuits, you sometimes need to simulate a large current consumption. At first sight, this seems rather trivial, but don't get it wrong: there are a few hidden pitfalls which are only waiting for you to make a mistake in order to sabotage your experiment. This week, we show you how we built a small box with a consumption that we can drive by USB.
