Would you like a Yocto-<insert_your_name> ?

By mvuilleu, in Misc, december 04,2012.

Most of the electronics we use today are built in series of hundredths of thousands, and designed so that "one-fits-all" (or, to be more precise, one-fits-the-mass-market). People think that it is no more possible to get a device dedicated for a specific set of functions, at an affordable price, for a small serie. Let us tell you that this is wrong. We build inexpensive, customized devices for some of our customers. This is how it works.

Yocto-Color and enclosure

By martinm, in Misc, november 23,2012.

Customers more and more often ask us which enclosure they should use with the Yocto-Color. The official answer is: "There is none". This is due an alignment error in the fixing holes. But unofficially, there is a way to make a Yocto-Color fit into an enclosure, as long as you are not afraid to tinker with your precious Yoctopuce products.

Excel and Yoctopuce devices

By martinm, in Programming, november 16,2012.

Not so long ago, someone asked us if our devices could be driven directly from Microsoft Excel. Actually the answer is yes. But, unfortunately, this not as easy to do as we like our libraries to be. Anyway, seeing Excel plotting data coming directly from a Yoctopuce sensor might be worth the effort.

An USB optical telemeter

By mvuilleu, in Measures, november 11,2012.

While surfing on the Internet, we found a nice little sensor: an optical rangefinder built by Sharp. Robotic specialists know it well, it's the most well known sensor to detect obstacles. In our selection of products, we currently don't offer a rangefinder sensor (telemeter). As an example, we are going to show you today how you could interface analog sensors of this type thanks to a Yoctopuce module.

Windows 8: Things are getting hot!

By mvuilleu, in Programming, november 02,2012.

Now that Windows 8 is finally available, we had to check that our modules work without trouble on this new OS. To perform a real test, we created a small C# application allowing us to monitor the temperature of several components of the computer (disks, graphic card, etc.) with the help of thermocouples. The good new is that it works!
