Yoctopuce, Swiss quality in design now in USA!
Recently we have concluded a USA distribution agreement with Yoctopuce of Switzerland. Swiss quality in design and manufacture of miniature functional boards! In their own words:
Who are we?
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 system configuration.
- 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.
We hope that you will appreciate our products and our services. Any suggestion to make them even better is welcome.
We are actively searching for new USB powered and digitally compatible products such as RADIATION SENSORS, WATER CHEMISTRY SENSORS, LIQUID AND GAS FLOW METERS, all with a miniature footprint.

As the makers of all the Phidgets (physical widgets) that tech-heads and inventors could possibly want, we have been pretty happy spreading the word online via our website and the various social media sites we participate in. But the best way to spread the word about all of the amazing products we produce is face to face. We want to go where the action is. So, this September 26th and 27th we will be at New York Hall of Science in Queens for the Makers Faire, the greatest show and tell event in the world.
What’s that? You have never heard of the Makers Faire? Or maybe you have but you have never had the opportunity to go. Well, we are inviting all of our Phidget fans, as well as people who have seen us online and are curious, to come meet us at the Faire.
The Makers Faire is the ideal setting for Green Energy Research to show our products. Since the founding of the United States, ingenuity and creativity have combined with the desire to create success and help others, to form the inventor mentality that drives us as a people. Americans love to solve problems, to make life easier or just more fun. At Green Energy Research, we work hard every day to contribute to this inventor mentality, amazed and delighted at how our products have helped inventors to create some brilliant results.
For the Green Energy Research team, we understand that inspiration comes not only from within and from your family, friends and co-workers but also from the person you have yet to meet. One of the most amazing events is when creative minds come together, find a spark and expand on it to create something wonderful. At the Makers Faire, we are looking forward to each spark we help to create, each spark we feel ourselves and each idea that grows out of those sparks.
The late Steve Jobs once said, “Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.” At the Makers Faire, we at Green Energy Research hope to meet the creative people and make that connection for the experiences that will synthesize new and wondrous things.
