Introduction to Reading Electronics Schematics [Video]

By Jason Fitzpatrick on November 23rd, 2011

If you’re interested in electronics tinkering but a bit overwhelmed by learning electronics schematics, this helpful introductory video will get you started.

Courtesy of Make magazine, this video tutorial covers what a schematic is, how schematics are laid out, and the basics of reading a schematic and its component symbols. When you’re done with the video you’ll have a better grasp of electronics circuit schematics than most of the population and, hopefully, and increased comfort reading schematics for all those DIY projects we post here.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
