New command line API

By martinm, in New stuff, october 09,2012.

Until now, when you wanted to test a Yoctopuce module, change a parameter, or read a sensor value, you had either to run a VirtualHub, or to write a short program yourself. From now on, there is a faster, simpler, and more efficient solution: the command line API...

Cook and Hold with Raspberry Pi (video)

By Sébastien Rinsoz, in Measures and Tiny PC, october 01,2012.

When we geek try to cook a nice chunk of meat, the tricky part is the cooking itself. Instead of sitting idle while the meat cooks, we go read something on the iPad, code some stuff or even to talk with the guests rather than watching a meat in the oven. And at the end, the meat is often overcooked. But this is gonna change. Our new recipe, using a Yocto-Thermocouple and Raspberry Pi, solves the issue. The Raspberry Pi will monitor the meat temperature for us, and send an e-mail as soon as the ideal temperature is reached. And long life to the smartphones !

New USB sensors

By mvuilleu, in New stuff, september 21,2012.

This week we are proud to announce the availability of two new products, long awaited by our industrial customers as well as DIYers. The first one, named Yocto-Thermocouple, is a tiny module capable of sensing the temperature at the end of two thermocouple cables, ideal to measure very high and fast-changing temperatures, as well as to measure the temperature of liquids or food for instance. The second one, named Yocto-CO2, measures carbon dioxide in ambiant air and will tell you about the quality of the air you are breathing.

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.
