Android engineering apps

CFE Media’s Apps for Engineers is an an interactive directory of almost 60 engineering-related Android applications that were created by various companies. The idea is to offer a “pre-sort” of relevant mobile engineering applications loaded with various calculators, catalogs, file viewers, measurement tools, and more. Apps for Engineers is targeted for engineers working in industrial,


EveryCircuit Free is an interesting Android app that aims to help to understand how electronic circuits work. Build any circuit, tap play button, and watch dynamic voltage, current, and charge animations. This gives you insight into circuit operation like no equation does to most of the people. The software is easier to start to use

A better way to use datasheets?

A better way to use datasheets than old-fashioned paper and pdf documents lying around? Hack Your Datasheets Using Datasheet.net article tells about a new service to view, snip, annotate and share information from millions of datasheets with engineers around the world. Take a look the datasheet.net introduction video: The biggest feature the datasheet.net service brings


HackEDA is an interesting looking new on-line electronics design tool. The premise is simple: most electronic projects are just electronic Lego: You connect your microcontroller to a sensor, add in a battery, throw in a few caps and resistors for good measure, and hopefully everything will work. HackEDA takes all those basic building blocks and


circuits.io is a new promising looking free circuit editor in your browser. I has browser based schematic and board layout. Circuits.io promises to be an in-your-browser circuit design tool, that makes it fun and easy to design, share and produce electronic circuits. It plans to revolutionizing electronic design and building with open hardware community on


Fritzing is an interesting open-source initiative to support designers, artists, researchers and hobbyists to work creatively with interactive electronics. We are creating a software and website in the spirit of Processing and Arduino, developing a tool that allows users to document their prototypes, share them with others, teach electronics in a classroom, and to create
