Developer Marcus Roskosch announces a substantial update to the Elektor Electronic Toolbox app for iPad and iPhone.


New features in Version 3.11.02

1. Four new mini tools:
- PIC controllers: more than 500, with detailed data including datasheets
- Atmel controllers: more than 200, including ATMega, ATtiny, AT90, AT32 etc. also with detailed data and datasheets
- Cable standards such as VDE 0276, 0250, 0815/0816, 0888 and 0282/0282 and their abbreviations and meanings
- American Wire Gauge (AWG) cable tool
2. TV-Out function: allows you to connect a TV or Projector even with older iPhone and iPad devices and a standard TV-Out cable (normally only possible with the new iPhone 4S and iPad 2)
3. Reworked Transistor Tool
4. Many additional small changes


The App supports the following languages: English, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Spanish and runs on all devices from iPod Touch, iPhone 2, 3G, 3GS, 4 and iPad from iOS 3.1.2 to iOS 4.x. Both Apps (iPhone and HD) are now identical so there is no need to buy the other version if you already have one.

The Elektor Electronic Toolbox combines 28 different categories, all with a consistent look and feel. Categories include:

• Type listings (with color coding) for resistors (including SMD types) and capacitors
• Databases for transistors, FETs, triacs, thyristors, diodes and ICs
• circuit value calculator for resistors, capacitors, coils and filter circuits
• An Ohms Law calculator
• Unit conversion for numerous types of measurement (pressure, energy, distance, speed, weight, etc.)
• A database for common electrical symbols
• An indices database of common electrical components
• Calculation of voltage regulators with 78xx, 79xx, LM317 or LM337
• NE555 circuit design
• Op-amp circuit calculation
• Number base converter (hex, decimal, binary etc.)
• Frequency, period, wavelength calculation
• LED / resistor calculation
• Voltage divider calculation
• R/L calculations
• BJT calculations
• Schematic diagrams
• Pinouts of audio, video, computer and phone sockets

At this point, Marcus expresses his thanks for all ideas and suggestions received from the huge user community. Most of these suggestions have been implemented over time. Further ideas, suggestions and criticisms are welcomed.
