Which altimeter to use ?

By seb, in Measures, april 24,2015.

We have two modules that can compute the altitude: the Yocto-GPS and the Yocto-Altimeter. These two modules determine the altitude with two radically different methods. Lets have a look at the advantages and disadvantages of both.

Light sensors comparison

By mvuilleu, in Reviews, New stuff and Measures, january 23,2015.

Some time ago, we had to stop making the Yocto-Light because the OSRAM light sensor that we used on this module stopped being produced. As a replacement, we now offer two products: the Yocto-Light-V2, more reactive, based on an AVAGO sensor, and the Yocto-Light-V3, truer to the human eye, based on a ROHM sensor. Let's see how they compare...

First tests of the LIDAR-Lite telemeter

By mvuilleu, in DIY, Measures and Reviews, january 09,2015.

When you wanted to measure a distance at a precise location, there wasn't, up to now, any middle range between very expensive laser telemeters (of the Baumer type) and cheap sensors (of the Sharp type). These cheap sensors don't provide a real measured value and are very limited distance-wise. Therefore, we were particularly interested in the LIDAR-Lite project which announced a distance measure of several meters for under $100. Nine months later, the baby is here at last and we can test the final version of the product to try out this new technology.

LabVIEW and Yoctopuce sensors

By mvuilleu, in New stuff, Programming and Measures, october 17,2014.

Week after week, more LabVIEW users discover our sensors and ask us if we will consider creating a full LabVIEW library for our devices. For now the only option was to write your own VI to invoke our command line library, which is neither very convenient nor very efficient. Therefore, we have decided to build a better solution, and we even have something for you to try. At this stage this is only a "proof of concept", but we are waiting for your feedback and your LabVIEW experience to make the final version of this new library as good as you would like it to be!
