Using a Yocto-PowerRelay to switch on a desk lamp from a computer is quite easy. However, to have to power on a computer to switch a lamp isn't really convenient. This week, we present a wiring allowing you to control a lamp both from a computer and from a simple switch, followed by a very handy application: a desk lamp controlled by a screen saver.
We just found out by chance how to get rid of one of the main hindrance limiting the use of our modules with Android mobile phones: the unique USB port which also serves to connect the power supply. Given that the mobile phone must power connected modules, the phone battery capacity has been a problem so far. What's new is that the "Galaxy Note II Smart Dock" is now available. This dock allows us to realize applications which before required much more hardware. We are going to present a short compatibility example of this device and as well as of the possibilities it provides once combined with our modules.
This week, we are proud to introduce our latest creation: the Yocto-Display device family. The Yocto-Displays are monochrome OLED display panels driven by USB. They have been designed with the Yoctopuce Plug'n'Play motto in mind: No drivers, easy to install, easy to use. We are almost certain you will love them :-)
Someone asked us recently if it is possible to drive a Canon EOS camera using a Yocto-Relay and information found on this site. We answered yes, of course, but not without a serious temptation to give it a try. Follow the guide, and don't miss the demo !
Sometimes people ask us for help about programming applications involving our devices. For instance, we have been asked for an application able to monitor mains voltage, with a variable sampling rate. Well, why not ? It has been a while since we haven't shown how easy our API is.
