Yoctopuce modules, MK805, and solar panels

By martinm, in Reviews and Tiny PC, september 14,2012.

There is one question which comes back rather often in the Yoctopuce team. Here it is: How to make Yoctopuce modules work in the middle of nowhere, in the back of the garden, for instance?. Indeed, it is unlikely to have an electrical outlet in the back of the garden, without even talking about a USB connection. In the opposite, there is sunshine, and we can easily make sure that we also are within a Wifi range. We are not solar specialists, but Yoctopuce modules consuming an average of 125 mW, it shouldn't be all that difficult to make them work with a solar panel...

USB support for Android is ready!

By Sébastien Rinsoz, in Programming and Android, september 07,2012.

A few weeks months ago, we announced the Java API. It is at last available, even better we have two versions of the Java API. A standard Java version and a version for Android. You can download them from the usual location. As we have already written about the standard Java library, we are going to talk about the specificities of the Andoid library.

About sensor calibration

By mvuilleu, in Measures, august 31,2012.

All of our USB sensor modules perform their measurement with the help of digital sensor chips, which are factory calibrated. It's our recipe to guaranty the announced precision of our modules, even when the sensors are moved away. However, we have recently introduced in all our sensor modules an additional adjustment function, allowing your to perform a correction to the measures on the fly. So, what's the need to correct a measure if it is already good? Doesn't this recalibration risk to reduce the measure precision rather than to enhance it?

The Python library is available!

By martinm, in Programming, august 23,2012.

Among the top ten questions regularly received by support, there is: "When the hell are you finally going to add Python support?" The phrasing is usually more polite, but that's the message :-)

Well, guess what, the Python library is now available, you can at long last control Yoctopuce modules with Python.

Temperature warnings under Windows

By martinm, in Programming, august 16,2012.

One of the most common uses of the Yocto-Temperature is to monitor the temperature in server rooms. Many customers have asked us about applications using our modules under Windows and able to send warning emails in case of temperature increase. To the point that we decided to create one, just like this, because we are really nice people :-)
