• Yocto-Knob

The Yocto-Knob device provides easy reading of 5 input buttons, contacts, switches, or potentiometers (knobs) from USB. It is a kind of USB analog-to-digital converter (adc). You can also use it to read any analog resistive sensor, such as photodiodes.

On the device, 5 tiny LEDs constantly show the value of the 5 inputs, and 5 micro-switches connected in parallel to the inputs simplify the testing of your project.

This device can be connected directly to an Ethernet network using a YoctoHub-Ethernet, to a WiFi network using a YoctoHub-Wireless-n and to a GSM network using a YoctoHub-GSM.
