This notation is designed to be relatively easy to write. This is achieved by not drawing ultra complex ASCII art boxes of every component. It would be slightly more readable if we did that, but prioritizing the writer here.
Two wires are only joined ifbut the following are:
+is given. E.g. the following two wires are not joined:
| --|-- |
| --+-- |
Simple symmetric components:
A: AC source. Parameters:
V: peak voltage
D: DC source. If only one side is given, the other is assumed to be at a ground
G: ground. Often used together with
V: Voltmeter without explicit positive and negative sides
X: Josephson junction
Asymmetric components have multiple letters indicating different ports. The capital letter indicates the device, and lower case letters the ports. The wires then go into the ports:
aDc: diodeSample usage in a circuit:
a: anode (where electrons can come in from)
| a D c |
--cDa-- | Dac-- | Dca-- | --caD
sgTd: transistorSample usage in a circuit:
---+ | --sgTd--
| g --sTd--
| --Tsgd-- |
pVn: Voltmeter with explicit positive and negative sides
dIs: electric current source. Electrons leave from
sand go into
Numbers characterizing components are put just next to each component with an underscore. When there is only one parameter, standard units are assumed, e.g.:means:
+-----+ | | C_1p R_2k | | +-----+
Micro is denoted as
- a capacitor with 1 pico Faraday
- a resistor with 2 k Ohms
Wires can just freely come in and out of specs of a component, they are then just connected to the component, e.g.:means applying a voltage of 10 V across a 10 Ohm resistor, which would lead to a current of 1 A
It resists to change in electric current. Well seen at: Video 4. "LC circuit by Eugene Khutoryansky (2016)".
People had already patented a lot of stuff before without being able to make them work. Nonsense.
As the name suggests, this is not very sturdy, and was quickly replaced by bipolar junction transistor.
This is the cutest product name ever.
Since 1992, Mr. SQUID has been the standard educational demonstration system for undergraduate physics lab courses.
This is how electronic circuits are normally prototyped!
Once you validate them like this, the next step is usually to move on to printed circuit boards for more reliable production setups.
Breadboards are a thing of beauty and wonder.
That Wikipedia page is the epitome of Wikipedia failure to explain things in a way that is of any interest to any learner. Video 1. "Tutorial on LC resonant circuits by w2aew (2012)" is the opposite.
Both are harmonic oscillators.
