The ST op-amps Android app has been fully tested and certified, and looks to simplify and speed up op-amp selection and circuit design. It is the second Android application published by ST, and joins the Dual EE app that enables smartphones with NFC (Near Field Communication) capabilities to read wireless tags containing ST’s RF memory chips.
With reference schematics and guides built in, ST op-amps have been designed to provide an intuitive, mobile design assistant accessible at any time or place. Touch-sensitive menus and scrollable pages make navigation through the application simple and take full advantage of the smartphone or tablet multi-touch user interface. Unlike similar apps, ST op-amps is focused only on design with op-amps and is not dependent on an Internet connection, since much of the functionality is native to the app. This approach enables engineers to find the information they need quickly and easily, and, when an Internet connection does exist, also provides a link to the ST website for further information as required.
Key features of ST op-amps mobile application include: browse op-amps, comparators and current-sensing products; touch to select design guidance on: current-sensing, compensation, stability criteria, Op-amp parameters; see possible schematics for popular functions; calculate external component values and view package mechanical information.
