Yoctopuce is a company based in Geneva, Switzerland. It has
been founded by three engineers with the intent of
enabling anyone to create simple systems
to automate daily tasks, implement original
ideas or simply build home automation gadgets.
Yoctopuce products make it possible to quickly and easily
build quality automation solutions, with an attractive form factor,
without any prior knowledge of electronics, and without necessarily
using a soldering iron.
Yoctopuce products are designed both for professionals, looking
for simple solutions that they can integrate easily, and
for hobbyists, without advanced knowledge in
computer science. In both cases, the value of our products
resides in the attention we pay to simplicity and quality:
- Our products are essentially USB peripherals, that are
easy to connect and require neither a driver, nor a particular operating
- Our programming interface (API) has been carefully designed to
be easy to use. We are working on making it available for a broad
range of programming languages used by our customers.
- We care also about physical properties of our products: we only
use high-quality materials, and provide convenient mechanical dimensions and
anchor points, etc. We do all the manufacturing in-house.
- Our modules are as small as we could make them without
sacrificing to physical properties. This makes it possible to build
nice-looking integrated solutions interfacing multiple modules.
- To enable long-lasting solutions, we have designed the boards
so that USB cables can easily be replaced by soldered connectors,
and firmware can be updated remotely.
Our past experience within companies more concerned about
their own profitability than customer satisfaction has
led us to a radically different approach. Our prices are
a direct function of the components purchase price and of our
own production costs, even when we know customers would
also buy it for more. Similarly, to make it easier for foreign
customers, we accept most currencies, without making any profit
on the exchange rate: we simply apply the exchange rate that
the bank will charge to us.
We hope that you will appreciate our products and our services.
Any suggestion to make them even better is welcome.
