Interfacing the DFRobot ID01 UHF RFID reader

By mvuilleu, in Programming and Reviews, may 14,2021.

At the present time, we don't have an RFID reader in our catalogue because to this date we haven't found an RFID module to be embedded which is compatible with our quality requirements and our price range. But from time to time, we try products that we find on the market to see what they are worth, and whether they can be used with Yoctopuce modules. This is what we did this week with the ID01 UHF RFID reader, sold by DFRobot.

Inclinometer tests

For some applications, the Yocto-3D and the Yocto-3D-V2 can be used as inclinometers, as they can estimate their spatial orientation. But you may have noticed that we don't provide any accuracy information on the inclination measure in the specifications. To know more, we are going to compare these two modules today with the Murata SCL3300 precision inclinometer that we interfaced last week with a Yocto-SPI.

After the NEEO remote control fiasco, we decided to get over it by playing with Flic buttons, the aim obviously being to use these buttons to drive Yoctopuce modules. This week, we present the results of our experiments on this topic...

USB cables: shielding matters as well...

By mvuilleu, in Reviews and Electronics, december 14,2018.

Yes, I have kids :-)Six years ago, we wrote a post on the influence of the electric resistance of USB cables on the proper working of peripheral devices. Today, we are going to talk about a little-known related problem, which drove us to change our USB cable provider: the shielding of USB cables.
