The ‘Elektor Electronic Toolbox’ (EET) is an iPhone and iPad app totally geared the needs of electronic engineers. Elektor now offers a new version, which now has 29 individual programs. A new addition is a tool for voltage rms calculation. In addition some bugs were cleared and new components added such as USB 3.0 connectors.
EET’s established features are impressive, too: the databases for the component groups identified as bipolar transistors, FETs, triacs, thyristors, diodes and ICs are very helpful in everyday electronics developing. The left part of the display allows you to select a component from a list, based on the type number. For this, simply scroll down with your finger, which is a smooth process on an iPad. A tap with your fingertip and the pin and important electrical characteristics pop up on the right hand side of the screen – all without an Internet connection present. A total of over 45,000 components are listed in the databases. [via]
