ByVac is a small manufacturing company specialising in tools and devices that make life easier for those involved with electronics. The products have been used for prototyping and designing new equipment. The range appeals to companies and hobbyists alike. This is not just a shop though as there is lots of input from users and the products themselves lead to quite a bit of documentation.
The concept is to take something that is complex or awkward and make it simpler some how, particularly at first. As an example the PIC32 microcontroller is a complex part. Using this from scratch with a C compiler would take quite a while to get into. Also on its own it does nothing when you plug it in. The BP1 or BP2 products you get an 'ok' prompt as soon as you connect up. You can still program in C, but why not use the built in ByPic.
I am responsible for thinking up and designing the products and they are currently all manufactured here in the UK. I enjoy doing this and make a living out of selling the products. As you may imagine there is not much time for anything else and so I can't support complete beginners, sorry. I also don't have much time for answering emails but I try my best.
I hope you like the products.
