Today we want to talk to you about ElectroDroid, an electronic Android application that will help you if you are a professional on this topic.
Even if you are not a professional electrician, it is always important to have information on connectors, colour codes, resistance values, etc., on hand for easy repairs at home.
This wonderful application will delight anyone who is in the world of electronics if from time to time you do a little thing about electricity or electronics, and it is rare that you do not forget the value of a resistor or if you have to do some calculation.
This application is not new, it has been on Google play for a long time but I wanted to make this entry because there will be people who do not know it.

Main Features Of ElectroDroid
ElectroDroid is an application that works as a catalogue of electronic tools, calculators and technical documentation, focused on those who have an interest in electricity and electronics.
Through an intuitive and pleasant user interface, the application allows the user to access essential resources for those who frequently work with electricity or electronic parts. From the main screen, you can access the resistance colour code or know Ohm’s Law.
It also comes with electrical diagrams and charts that allow the user to better understand the calculations and tasks that he performs with electrical and electronic equipment.
Indispensable For Both Students And Professionals
For an electronics or electricity student, ElectroDroid represents a convenient way to do your exercises and put them into practice.
You do not need to take your notes everywhere as all the information you need is provided by this electronics application.
Although an Internet connection is required for some parts, most sections can be viewed without having to be connected to the web.
This is a great advantage for those who must work in places where there is no access to a WiFi connection.
For electrical and electronics professionals, ElectroDroid works as an ideal support and consultation complement. Just open the application to access the most important information, even with a wide variety of calculation tools.
The application is useful in all aspects, it is also very easy to use and understand. Its home screen shows us four tabs: Calculators, Pin-Outs, Resources and Plugins. In the upper corner are the settings and a link to download new plugins.
Here you will find basically all the calculators for electronics circuits, starting with the reactance/resonance calculator, voltage drop calculator, power calculator, as well as tools to convert decibels, frequencies, resolution or voltage level.
Also included here are the Resistor Color Code, the SMD Resistor Code, plus the Inductor Color Code. You can also calculate the filter cutoff frequency, the capacitor charge and the maximum dissipation power of thermal resistance or temperature.
This is a very interesting section of ElectroDroid where you can find detailed descriptions with text and drawings of the different types of connectors that exist. From the USB port, Serial port and Parallel port, to HDMI connector, VGA connector and MIDI connector.
All you have to do is click on the connector that interests you and you will access all the information of specifications and precise characteristics and supported by graphics. The application allows you to use the zoom to zoom in or out and comfortably view the information.
This section is a bit similar to Pin-Outs in that it also gives you detailed information and images from different resources such as the Microcontroller Database, USB specifications, Resistivity Table, Schematic Circuit Symbols, Radio Frequency and more.
In some cases, the application will require connecting to the Internet to download additional information about a specific resource. However, in most cases, the information is already included and ready to be viewed without problems.
In this section of ElectroDroid, you can search and download plugins or plugins that will allow you to add new features to the application and increase its functionality. In this way, you can download, for example, the PartSeeker plugin, which helps you find electronic parts and components.
You can also download the Atmicro Database plugin, which is a plugin through which you can check the characteristics of all the microcontrollers produced by Atmel.
There is also a plugin, PICmicro Database, with which you can check the characteristics of all PIC and dsPIC microcontrollers, produced by Microchip.
Our Impressions On ElectroDroid
In the final summary, we conclude that ElectroDroid is an indispensable electronics app for both the professional and the student, even for the common user who occasionally has to make electronic repairs.
The information it provides is clear and detailed, with data that allows the user to determine the best course of action while working. With ElectroDroid it is not necessary to use a separate calculator since the calculations can be done directly without leaving the application.
Just enter the values to get the results immediately. Consequently, ElectroDroid is a highly functional and useful application for anyone who has an interest in electronics or who constantly requires this type of calculation due to their work
