RS releases DesignSpark Toolbox app
16 May 2018, News

RS Components has unveiled a new app for iOS, Android and Windows devices. The DesignSpark Toolbox app is available to download free-of-charge, and 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.

The app has been developed in conjunction with Marcus Roskosch, the creator of a range of highly successful apps for engineers, and replaces the RS Toolbox app, which was introduced in 2013 for iOS and achieved more than 65 000 downloads.

DesignSpark Toolbox 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 system converters, an Ohm’s Law calculator, and lookup tables for battery types and sizes. The app 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, covering everything from Arduino and Raspberry Pi to IoT and blockchain.

The ‘Make’ section provides the perfect place 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 new DesignSpark Marketplace, where makers and startups can buy and sell their creations.

The DesignSpark Toolbox app is available to download now from the iOS App Store, Google Play and Microsoft Store.
