Circuit Symbols

These circuit symbols were created by Jim Brevard. With his permission, I have included them for other educators' use.

PC Instructions:

Copy images by selecting image, CTRL C. You may directly paste the image into a Word document by using the shortcut CTRL V.

You may resize the image once it is incorporated into Word by right clicking onto the image and selecting Format Picture. Select the Size tab. Be sure the the option Lock Aspect Ratio is checked. You may now change either the scale or size.

Use the drawing toolbar to add connecting lines for wires, etc. To get to the drawing toolbar, choose View/Toolbars/Drawing from the menu.
