Electronics Assistant V4.31 now available!

Post by Simon (Webmaster) » Tue Nov 06, 2012 7:29 pm

Electronics Assistant version 4.31 is now available to download from the 'downloads' link on the menu at the top of this page. Users of V4.1 or later can also install it by selecting 'check for updates' on the 'help' menu. If you have problems installing the update automatically, run Electronics Assistant as an administrator or download manually.

Version 4.31 fixes a bug introduced into the LED series resistor calculator in the recently released version 4.3. I've also changed the version numbering to include 2 decimal places; all future releases will use this system.

Version 4.3 added a handful of enhancements and bug fixes, but did not add any new calculators. I have a number of new calculators on the 'to do' list, and hope to add these in the next major version. In the meantime, changes in V4.3 include:
  • 555 timer calculator can now calculate for duty cycles < 50%
  • LED calculator now shows resistor power dissipation
  • Added option for multiple LEDs in series to LED calculator
  • Fixed bug causing capacitor code calculator to lock up in V4.2
As always, any comments, suggestions or bug reports are welcome - please post them in this forum, or use the contact link on the program's help menu.

Electronics Assistant is freeware, but if you find the program useful a small donation would be appreciated to support continued development. Donations can be made through PayPal via the link on the menu, or the 'make a donation' link on the 'help' menu in Electronics Assistant.
