The Intel Edison and Yoctopuce

By martinm, in Reviews, february 27,2015.

We briefly tested the Intel Galileo board a few weeks ago. This made us want to test the latest from Intel, that is the Edison. This thing is literally a Linux x86 PC, with the size of a stamp. We really wanted to know if it was possible to use it to drive Yoctopuce modules. Indeed, its size makes it particularly interesting for any embedded system. So we bought one and we played with it...

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.

The quest for the ideal Mini-PC (second edition)

By martinm, in Reviews and Tiny PC, january 02,2015.

Almost two years ago, we wrote a quick review of some available mini PCs. Since then, new machines have appeared on the market. We tested some of them. Some were used to control some of our friday projects, others were bought just for the fun of playing with them. Here are some thoughts about these mini-PCs we tested...

Building a RC car with Yoctopuce devices

By martinm, in Reviews, DIY and Internet of Things, july 11,2014.

During the Yocto-Motor-DC test phase we have conducted quite a lot of experiments to make sure the device would be reliable and would not cause a fire on the first occasion. One of these experiments could be of some interest to you. We have been wondering if it was possible to build a radio controlled car using only Yoctopuce devices...
