Version 9.1.1 – Sep 13, 2015

This version contains new tools, many feature improvements and of course some bug fixes.

New tools:

■ Optocoupler Database – This new Database tool contains more than 400 Optocoupler types including description and pinout
■ Packages Database – This new tool contains more than 300 Package types like DIP, DIP, TO, SIP, SOT etc.

The following new features have been implemented:

■ iOS 9

Electronic Toolbox and RF-Toolbox are now not only fully compatible with iOS 9 (while still backward compatible down to iOS 7), they also support new features introduced with iOS 9 such as:

■ Split view (use the App side by side with another App)
■ Multitasking (App will continue to run in Split view)
■ Improved user interface on iPhone 6 plus and 6s plus in landscape mode

Additional improvements:

■ Now it is possible to directly jump to the compatible types listed inside the transistors, FETs etc.
■ You can now also directly jump to the 74xx and 40xx ICs from inside the Logic tool
■ The Battery charge tool can now also calculate discharge
■ Improved Database parametric filtering
■ Substrate Dielectric can now be selected (e.g. FRA4, GETEC, Polyimide etc.) in the PCB tools (RF-Toolbox only)
■ The voltage divider now also displays ratio between R1/R2 and V1/V2
■ Generator, Scope and Frequency counter now allows input and output either on built in speaker / microphone or headphone plug
■ Upon request, the Frequency tool can now again convert between Period/Frequency/Wavelength
■ Tools like the Raspi tool now have “Useful links“

Improvements in the Projects section:

■ Many additional components added
■ The component browser now allows to search for component types
■ Inside the project, you can now directly jump to the corresponding tool for a certain component. This way, you can now easily double check the pinouts, datasheets or color-code directly from inside the project tool

Bug fixes:

■ The Battery plot function is now working again
■ Some corrections in the parametric filters
■ Some corrections in the calculation of the Toroid tool
■ Some general corrections in the transformer tool
