What are USB sensors, I/O and networking?

They are high quality, low-cost electronic sensors and controls that are powered and communicate via the USB port on your computer. They are essentially USB peripherals. This enables a software application to interact with the physical world. These building blocks allow sensing and control through use of a computer, tablet or phone.



Offering a robust API, USB electronics allow for easy program writing and simple installation. Focusing on quality engineering and the affordability of electronic components, USB sensors, I/O and networking boards are universal so they can be used with a variety of operating systems and programming languages. The durability of these components allows for minimal replacements and since there is no proprietary software, there is nothing to download. Just plug in the device and go!


Phidgets and Yoctopuce support all major operating systems such as Windows, macOS, Linux, Phidget SBC, IOSIOS and Android. Though we recommend using Python as a default programming language, you can also use other in-depth API’s of your choice such as C#, C, Java, JavaScript, Visual Basic .NET, Swift, Objective C, LabVIEW and Max/MSP.


What can USB sensors, I/O and networking be used for?

USB peripherals are a preferred choice among a variety of enterprises. This includes schools, businesses, entrepreneurs, hobbyists and researchers. Since USB peripherals can be used as a universal electronic component, it’s a very effective option for:


  • Building prototypes to test concepts, processes or products.
  • STEM education
  • Automating industrial processes and machine monitoring
  • Aiding in highly modified applications such as monitoring earthquake activity by incorporating a wireless network of spatial sensors.
  • Drone guidance systems
