What are the symbols represent in circuit diagram?

Last Update Time: 2019-03-26 11:26:30


Fig. 1 illustrates the representation of the signal in the circuit diagram. A8, G11 and the like indicate the pin number of the CPU socket. DB10#, DBI1#, DBI2# are the data lines 0, 1, 2 of CPU socket. The signal is called HINIT# followed by the number, and 10 indicates that the signal is connected to page 10. The X in front of the H4 pin indicates that this signal is not used.


                        Fig.1 H_DBI#[0..3] Connection

The H_DBI# [0..3] shown in figure 1 is not actually connected together, but is simply drawn together for easy viewing. This signal expands into four separate signals after page 6, as shown in figure 2.

2. The lines cross and connect.

In fact, in the circuit diagram cross lines are not necessarily connected, the novice in the view of some wires are cross together, but others said this is interlinked, the other is not connected, always medicine is very chaotic. The cross well and the connected line have a solid point in the middle, and if the cross is not connected generally there is no solid point, as shown in Fig. 3.

3. Common component symbols.

(1) Resistor.

Resistor symbols and parameters, shown in figure 4, represent resistor with a position number R4 with a resistance value of 10Ω.

(2)Network resistor.

The resistive symbol is shown in figure 5, with the RN45 indicating the resistive position number, the 8P4R indicating that there are eight pins with four independent resistors, and the 10KR indicating a resistor value of 10 kΩ per resistor.

The symbols of the capacitance are shown in figs. 6 and 7. In Fig. 6, the EC45 indicates the capacitance position number, the capacitance has a one-pin grounding, the capacitance is the filter capacitance, the 1000U is the capacitance capacity, and the 6V3 indicates the capacitance voltage. In Fig. 7, C423 and C458 are capacitive position numbers, with capacitors in series in signal lines indicating that capacitors are coupling capacitors, CO.1U for capacitance capacity 0. 1 μ F, 16 for capacitance withstand voltage for 16 V, and 0402 for capacitor packaging.

(7) Crystal oscillator.

The symbol of crystal oscillator circuit is shown in Fig. 11. X7 denotes the seventh crystal oscillator, and X-32.768K denotes the frequency of product vibration 32.768kHz.

(8) Triode.

The Triode symbol is shown in figure 12, the (a) arrow is outwardly represented as the NPN Triode, and the (b) arrow is shown inward as the PNP Triode.

(9) MOS tube.

In use, MOS transistors are commonly used in both N and P channels, and the circuit symbols are shown in figure 13.

10)Operational amplifier.

LM358,LM324 and other devices are operational amplifiers, used in the main board to control the MOS tube voltage down to get the corresponding power supply, the circuit symbol is shown in figure 14.

(11) Gate circuits.

The common gate circuits in the circuit motherboard are non-gate, and gate or gate, and the circuit symbol is shown in figs. 15-17.

(12) Chip.

In addition to the basic electronic components, there are chips in the motherboard, such as memory power supply chip, power management chip and so on. These chips are usually square to lead the feet, and pin REFN in English, as shown in figure 18.

4. Method of representation without mounting components.

The same model but different versions of the motherboard, components will not be the same, some components are not installed or multiple. In order to distinguish between installation and non-installation, the factory usually uses a symbol in the circuit diagram.
