rs-components-117-03-2014RS Components has unveiled its first design support app for iOS-based mobile devices. Called RS Toolbox, this new app, which is available free of charge, provides a central access point to popular electronic reference materials and calculation and conversion tools in an easy-to-use format for electronics design engineers, hobbyists and students. RS Toolbox runs on mobile devices that use the iOS operating system, which includes iPads, iPhones and iPod Touch devices from Apple. A version that runs on Windows 8 devices is also planned. The new app is based on the “Electronic Toolbox Pro” app, which was developed by Marcus Roskosch, the creator of a range of highly successful apps for engineers. Electronic Toolbox Pro has attracted a high level of acceptance from engineers with more than 200 000 downloads to date. The app offers an extensive range of functions, which are grouped as icons on the main screen, including a multitude of engineering calculators, converters and lookup tables.
