DipTrace: Make a custom PCB for Yoctopuce devices

By mvuilleu, in Electronics and DIY, july 11,2016.

It is easy to combine Yoctopuce devices to build a complex system, like Lego bricks. But using micro-USB cables for interconnections is often not adequate to make a robust, compact and professional-grade solution. One possible alternative to USB cables is the use of small wires with 1.27mm connectors, much smaller, which can be soldered on all our devices. Today we are showing a second alternative, which also solves the question of fixing the complete system in a dedicated enclosure.

New: the Yocto-3D-V2

By mvuilleu, in New stuff and DIY, july 01,2016.

The Yocto-3D is in the top 10 of the products we sell the most. Nevertheless, we have a problem with it: it doesn't allow us to calibrate a compensation for magnetic perturbations, and its firmware is choke-full, which prevents us from improving it. So we attacked the problem from a different angle and, today, we propose a new, similar product, but based on a more efficient sensor including hard iron magnetic compensation. Welcome to the Yocto-3D-V2...

Some time ago, we did an experiment that might interest you. Its goal was to check the behavior of the YoctoHub-GSM-3G-EU when it switches from one provider to another one in roaming. We therefore needed a moving YoctoHub-GSM, so we created an autonomous GPS tracking beacon that communicates by GSM.

Grocery list 2.0

By martinm, in DIY and Internet of Things, february 26,2016.

How many times did you just get back from grocery shopping when you noticed that you forgot to buy an essential item, such as coffee or worse... sugar? Obviously, a pencil and a paper should theoretically protect you against this kind of mishap. But you must still not lose or forget the shopping list before you go shopping. This week, we propose a solution based on Yoctopuce modules to solve this annoying issue.
