This product makes light. But this is no ordinary light: you can drive the color and intensity of the light from USB. Use it to easily display the status of an automated process, or to build your very own cool usb gadget.

This module is made of 3 parts: the main board connected to usb, and 2 miniature sub-boards with one rgb led (color led) on each. Each sub-board can be detached, so you can place the color leds wherever you want.

Moreover, this device works as well without an active USB connection. You can configure the led power-on color from software, then use a simple USB charger to power it.

This product is not available anymore, it is replaced with the Yocto-Color-V2.

This device can be connected directly to an Ethernet network using a YoctoHub-Ethernet, to a WiFi network using a YoctoHub-Wireless-g, it can even be connected to a GSM network thanks to the YoctoHub-GSM.
