Given two points in latitude/longitude form (both degrees and radians supported), the calculator can give you the great circle (shortest) distance between the two points, and the initial/final bearings. This calculator can also find an intermediate coordinate/point between the two coordinates, given a fractional amount (such as 0.5). All of these properties are calculated using the Haversine formula.
All these properties are shown on a interactive model of the earth in 3D (the sphere can be rotated).
NinjaCalc v1.3.0 has been released! The biggest change is the addition of a CRC calculator, which allows you to calculate the CRC value for ASCII or hex data, using either common pre-loaded CRC algorithms or your own custom algorithm.
The custom algorithm section allows you to enter a CRC width from 1-64 bits, a CRC polynomial, initial value, XOR-out value, and whether the input data and/or the output CRC value is reflected. Then it will calculate the resultant CRC value.
It’s update time! Here is a list of some of most important updates that have happened on this site in the last month or so…
New image format for the Component Package page images! For each component package, I have begun to use an individual slideshow for the associated images. This looks way better than the existing way of just posting the associated images one-by-one down the page.
There are new pages under Web Design on node.js (or just called node) and JSON.
There is a new calculator on the Resistors page, called the Standard Resistance Calculator. You pass it any resistance, and it will find the closest standard resistance according the series you specify (e.g. E12, E48 series).
For starters, an Ohm’s Law calculator has been added to the Resistors page. It is very basic, expect functionality and appearance upgrades in the near future.
