DipTrace: Make a custom PCB for Yoctopuce devices

By mvuilleu, in Electronics and DIY, july 11,2016.

It is easy to combine Yoctopuce devices to build a complex system, like Lego bricks. But using micro-USB cables for interconnections is often not adequate to make a robust, compact and professional-grade solution. One possible alternative to USB cables is the use of small wires with 1.27mm connectors, much smaller, which can be soldered on all our devices. Today we are showing a second alternative, which also solves the question of fixing the complete system in a dedicated enclosure.

New: the Yocto-3D-V2

By mvuilleu, in New stuff and DIY, july 01,2016.

The Yocto-3D is in the top 10 of the products we sell the most. Nevertheless, we have a problem with it: it doesn't allow us to calibrate a compensation for magnetic perturbations, and its firmware is choke-full, which prevents us from improving it. So we attacked the problem from a different angle and, today, we propose a new, similar product, but based on a more efficient sensor including hard iron magnetic compensation. Welcome to the Yocto-3D-V2...

Building a GPS tracking beacon

By martinm, in DIY and Internet of Things, june 24,2016.

Some time ago, we did an experiment that might interest you. Its goal was to check the behavior of the YoctoHub-GSM-3G-EU when it switches from one provider to another one in roaming. We therefore needed a moving YoctoHub-GSM, so we created an autonomous GPS tracking beacon that communicates by GSM.

Comparison of IoT cellular data plans

By mvuilleu, in Reviews and Internet of Things, june 17,2016.

When you design an application for the Internet of Things based on cellular communications, the price of the communications can represent an important part of the total costs. As the market is expanding, there are new subscription packages dedicated to these applications, with varying conditions depending on the provider. Are all the offers equivalent? Is quality in direct relationship to the price? This is what came out of our first investigations...

The VirtualHub, a multi-purpose tool

By martinm, in For the beginners, june 10,2016.

In our "Yoctopuce for beginners" series, we recently described how to use the VirtualHub to configure Yoctopuce modules. But, actually, the VirtualHub does not simply provide a graphical interface to test and configure Yoctopuce modules, it can do much more. This week, we invite you to discover other facets of this rather magical tool.
