This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at if that is a problem.

Lesson 10: Schematics and Datasheets

Learn How Electronic Designs Are Documented

Lecture 10 Lesson Page

Beyond the electronics and fun experiments that we have performed in the previous lessons, we need to study how electrical schematics are drawn so that we can document our designs. This lesson gives an overview of how to draw schematics and takes a few looks at what datasheets are, how to use them and why we need them.

Discussion is open, so please let us hear the answers to your homework either here on P2PU or in our forums. Or, if you have other questions, shout them out loud!

The PyroEDU Kickstarter Project reached 101% of our $5,000 goal and so we will be able to build our next course, An Introduction To Digital Electronics. We'll be releasing it in March 2013, so please keep your eyes and ears peeled for when it comes out.
