What are schematics or circuit board diagrams?
Circuit board diagrams are graphical representations of electrical circuits, including all electrical connections, showcasing the arrangement of all the wires and components. Circuit board diagrams are created with the intention of producing a final circuit design, often to elaborate a PCB’s layout.
There are different kinds of circuit diagrams:
This type of diagram shows all of the components and connections of the circuit, just like a technical map, only that they aren’t necessarily going to be pointing out the final design locations of each component in the physical device, they communicate lots of information by using standardized symbolic representations.
These give a visual representation of the circuit to an electrical engineer or electrician, and tell him exactly which components are needed, and how they must be connected to fulfill their functions, but they do not provide any physical layout of where the wiring should go.
Pictorial circuit diagrams
This type of diagram is a simple representation of the physical mapping of an electrical circuit, showing where fixtures and components are connected to the system. They’re typically intended for a less technical audience.
They often show the physical appearance of the device in a better and more easily understood way than other diagrams, and can contain photos or sketches of the physical components with proper labeling, so anyone can understand what they are depicting.
Wiring diagrams use simplified shapes and lines to represent each component of the circuit, and are often used to assist in the manufacturing of electronic devices, by providing easy-to-read-data about the features and relative positions of the circuit’s parts to every member of the team.
They show how each wire should be located in the device and the relationship between all the physical connections for each component.
