Update 6.00.06 is out for Electronic Toolbox and RF Toolbox

A new app update is available for both apps

This update contains the following changes:

  • For non-retina devices, there is now a new “small” Icon setting which is different to the “standard” which gives you back the Icon size as before if you prefer this size.
  • A more consistent and correct usage of the “mils” unit
  • Some corrections and changes for 3-Band resistors
  • Some corrections in the OpAmp tool, especially for the inverting and differential OpAmp calculations
  • Some corrections in the Attenuator calculator
  • Now, for iOS 4 devices, the “special keyboard” will be disabled automatically as this is not possible with iOS 4
  • Faster data update download
  • A new tool for SWG (Standard Wire Gauge)
  • And finally, EIA-96 coding support in the SMD resistor tool

Those changes apply to Electronic Toolbox as well as to RF Toolbox.

I am currently already working on some more change requests you sent me and also on some new tools that are hopefully about to come soon.

Thanks again for all your mails and support.

Kind regards,

Marcus

P.S.

I am still receiving questions from people wondering about the changes in Version 6. You can find more information here : Version 6 changes

RF-Toolbox released and Electronic Toolbox app AND data update available

RF-Toolbox available

News for today:

  • RF-Toolbox has been released
  • A new App update V 6.00.05 for Electronic Toolbox is available
  • And finally there is a data update for Electronic Toolbox available

First regarding RF-Toolbox:

This new app is specialized on high frequency electronics for RF professionals, radio amateurs and students. RF-Toolbox is based on my Electronic Toolbox, contains some of the common tools from Electronic Toolbox but contains a wide range of additional tools, specialized for high frequency electronics, RF professionals, radio amateurs and students.

Just checkout the features and screenshots on my website: creating-your-app/rf-toolbox or the AppStore : itunes.apple.com

New app and data update for Electronic Toolbox:

The data update V 1.23 comes along with a new app update V 6.00.05 so please check out the AppStore for an app update as well as pressing “Check for update now” inside the app (settings screen) to get the latest data update. The order of these updates doesn’t matter.

The data update includes new ICs as requested such as the MCP3204, the MCP3208 and the MAX7219. It also contains some more units for the measurements tool as well of some corrections (e.g. the OBD II socket).

The app update V 6.00.05 contains basically some corrections for the NE555 tool, where it was not possible to calculate based on a given time or frequency. Now, it is possible to enter either the time or frequency as unit in order to perform the desired calculation.

Also, the RLC tool has been revised so that either RL, RC, LC and RLC impedances can be calculated either in series and parallel circuits.
Finally, some information texts have been added to some tools.

Thanks again and kind regards,

Marcus
