Light sensors comparison

By mvuilleu, in Reviews, New stuff and Measures, january 23,2015.

Some time ago, we had to stop making the Yocto-Light because the OSRAM light sensor that we used on this module stopped being produced. As a replacement, we now offer two products: the Yocto-Light-V2, more reactive, based on an AVAGO sensor, and the Yocto-Light-V3, truer to the human eye, based on a ROHM sensor. Let's see how they compare...

First tests of the LIDAR-Lite telemeter

By mvuilleu, in DIY, Measures and Reviews, january 09,2015.

When you wanted to measure a distance at a precise location, there wasn't, up to now, any middle range between very expensive laser telemeters (of the Baumer type) and cheap sensors (of the Sharp type). These cheap sensors don't provide a real measured value and are very limited distance-wise. Therefore, we were particularly interested in the LIDAR-Lite project which announced a distance measure of several meters for under $100. Nine months later, the baby is here at last and we can test the final version of the product to try out this new technology.

Some were used to control some of our friday projects, others were bought just for the fun of playing with them. Here are some thoughts about these mini-PCs we tested...

New Excel plug-in

By mvuilleu, in Programming, december 24,2014.

Some time ago we showed you how to efficiently read Yoctopuce sensors from Excel, using an RTD server written in C# .NET. As this solution works quite well, we have been asked whether it was possible to extend our sample code to handle other Yoctopuce devices. It's Christmas time, here you are :-)
