Free app simplifies access to reference materials, calculation and conversion tools
RS Components has released a new app for iOS, Android and Windows devices. The DesignSpark Toolbox app is available to download free-of-charge and offers access to common electronic reference materials, calculation and conversion tools in a simple-to-use format for electronics design engineers, makers and students.
The app has been developed together with Marcus Roskosch, the creator of a range of apps for engineers, and supersedes the RS Toolbox app, which was introduced in 2013 for iOS and had more than 65,000 downloads.
“This app places a vast amount of component data and online calculations at the fingertips of engineers, students and makers, enabling them to exploit creativity and innovation,” said Mike Bray, vice president of DesignSpark at RS. “It is yet another example of our mission at DesignSpark to deliver free, high-performance tools that make the design process faster, easier and more affordable.”
He added: “We have listened to feedback from our members with regards to our previous app, and in particular their desire for an Android version, and improved functionality. Thankfully we have now been able to deliver both for them, along with access to many DesignSpark features on their mobile devices. The app will always be free-of-charge to support our community, and will be regularly updated in the future to offer more and more functionality.”
