Have you ever had a giant pile of loose resistors to organize? I have! Instead of slowly calculating every single part in your head, I wrote this program, which allows me to simply call out the codes, and the computer responds with the part’s value! I’m sure I could make this much more useful in the future, but here’s the initial version.
Currently, it handles four and five-band resistors, capacitors, and inductors. It also recognizes EIA-96 parts.
If you find it useful, drop me a line and let me know what you’d like to see. I wrote a full-blown EIA-algorithm for this already, so extending the E192 and other tolerances and such would be a cinch. It has also crossed my mind to add a voice-powered calculator. If it gathers a following, I’ll certainly extend some new features. Otherwise, this is it.
*Fixed: Inductors and capacitors are now correctly interpreted as standard units (uF and uH).
*Fixed: Application now disables listening while text to speech synthesis is playing – preventing a feedback/loop issue
*Added: About dialog screen
*GPL Source Release: Code is now on Github!
