ST Microelectronics have developed a new android app known as ‘ST op-amps.’ The app is suitable for mobile devices including smart phones and tablets and it allows users to design analog circuits in a fast and spontaneous manner.
The android app enables engineers to design circuits using operational amplifiers (op-amps), many of which are designed into audio, monitoring, control and communication systems.
The ST op-amps android app can be used to design circuits within 15 seconds of installation into mobile devices, and it is available for free from the Google Play Store.
The android app is fully developed, tested and certified and it simplifies and speeds up op-amp selection and circuit design.
Touch sensitive menus and scrollable pages make the process of navigation simple and easy, and the android app can be used at any time or place.
ST op-amp is particularly unique because unlike other android apps, it does not require an Internet connection. This device is thus very suitable for engineers as they are constantly on the move and may travel to areas that lack an Internet connection.
When an Internet connection does exist however, the app provides provides users with the opportunity to link to the ST Microelectronics website so they may access additional information as required.
Key features include:
- Browse op-amps, comparators and current sensing products
- Touch to select design guidance on current-sensing, compensation and stability criteria
- Op-amp parameters
- See possible schematics for popular functions
- Calculate external component values
- View package mechanical information
- Download datasheets
