Which electronic calculators do you like?

Anything short of this isn’t good enough March 29, 2019 at 10:55 am Editor’s note: Our good friend Max is looking for any suggestions for electronic calculators and solvers. Nothing’s too great or too small. Let him know which you think might be worth including in EEWeb.com’s list of tools.  Every now and then, an unexpected ray of sunshine breaks through the clouds to brighten my life. Such an event just transpired. Moments ago, as I pen these words, I was informed by those who don the undergarments of authority and stride the corridors of power that we are going to add to EEWeb’s collection of electronic calculators. (Source: pixabay.com) The only downside is that, based on the capricious and convoluted reverse chronological reality (RCR) favored by those who dwell in the hallowed halls of destiny and delight in casting the dice to determine our fates, they now want to know why I didn’t preemptively commence this task last week. They care not to hear my tales of woe regarding my inability to obtain the parts that I need to repair my time machine. What they want is results! (Their exclamation point, not mine.)Specifically, what we are talking about here is calculator and solver-type tools targeted at the designers of electronic systems. For your delectation and delight, a list of our existing calculators and solvers is presented below (I’ve not included the more sophisticated tools like schematic capture, simulation, and PCB layout).What I’m asking of you is suggestions for any similar calculators and solvers that you would like us to add to EEWeb.com. Don’t be afraid. Let your imagination run wild and free. What do you think about acoustic calculators, or power calculators, or…? If you have any suggestions, now is your chance to shout them from the rooftops (metaphorically speaking). All you have to do is post your suggestions as comments in my article and/or email me at and we’ll take it from there.>> See Max’s article on our sister site, EEWeb: “Which Electronic Calculators Should We….” March 25, 2019 at 12:52 pm Log in to Reply Continue Reading Previous Kontron: 3U CP3005-SA CPU board works in extended temperature range of -40 to +70°CNext Renesas: bidirectional synchronous buck-boost controllers for battery-powered applications Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: EDA “Hi Mel — thanks for your feedback — Max” MelBrandle says: March 25, 2019 at 1:14 pm 3 thoughts on “Which electronic calculators do you like?” Log in to Reply Log in to Reply Max The Magnificent says: MarkSindone says: “I personally have no personal favourites on digital calculators because of how simple my workload usually is.
