RS Components DesignSpark Toolbox app
RS Components has released the DesignSpark Toolbox app for iOS, Android and Windows devices. Available to download free of charge, the app provides a single point of access to common electronic reference materials, calculation and conversion tools in an easy-to-use format for electronics design engineers, makers and students. It has been developed in conjunction with Marcus Roskosch, the creator of a range of apps for engineers, and replaces the RS Toolbox app, which was introduced in 2013 for iOS.
The product offers an extensive range of functions, which are grouped as icons on the main screen, including engineering calculators, converters and lookup tables. These functions include filter frequency calculators, a 555 timer configurator, calculators for a variety of voltage regulators and op-amps, and essential tools such as numbering systems converters, an Ohm’s Law calculator, and lookup tables for battery types and sizes. It offers a high level of customisation and is available in 17 different languages.
Users will also be able to access many DesignSpark community features within the app, placing thousands of member-contributed articles and projects at their disposal. The ‘Make’ section can be used to keep track of projects on the go with sections to store website links, images, technical documents and more. There is even access to the DesignSpark Marketplace, where makers and start-ups can buy and sell their creations.
The app places a vast amount of component data and online calculations at the fingertips of its users, enabling them to exploit creativity and innovation by aiding design, BOM, procurement and stock keeping. In addition to the common calculation tools and component comparison tables, it incorporates product search, barcode scanning, reference materials, 3D models and more.
The app is available to download from the App Store, Microsoft Store and Google Play. It will be regularly updated in the future to offer more functionality.
