Explore electronic schematics, which are the road maps to circuits. Learn common schematic symbols and drawing conventions, so you can interpret existing schematics and create your own.
- [Instructor] An electronic schematic…is the graphical representation of a circuit.…It serves as your guide…for building and debugging that circuit,…so it's critical that you know…how to read and interpret schematics.…Schematics can be small and simple…circuit diagrams like this one,…or large, complex designs that can span multiple pages.…Regardless of their size,…the way that you read them is the same.…Electronic schematics use symbols…to represent the components in a circuit,…and those components are connected to each other…with lines that represent electrical connections.…
It's important to understand…that the relative location of components…in an electronic schematic…does not necessarily represent…their physical location within a circuit.…And the length of the lines in a schematic…does not correspond to the length of wires…used to connect those components.…The elements of a schematic are purely symbolic,…and they should be organized in a way…that makes them easiest to read and interpret.…When it comes time to actually build the circuit,…
