The Difference Between Circuit Diagram and Schematic Diagram
I am not an electrician or electronic technician. Thus, I would like to know the difference between a circuit diagram and a schematic diagram.
Since the OP is not an engineer or related technician, I would like to answer it in a simple language. A schematic diagram shows the real connections between the components as they appear on a circuit. A circuit diagram is generally a graphic design that could be a printed or simple holes yet to be connected.
In electronic terms a circuit diagram is way too complicated because it has to use capacitors, diodes and Ices to complete a circuit. The circuit needs increased and decreased voltage at different points.
It sounds confusing for me. I am not to the point of arguing you about the use of capacitors, diodes and ICs. When we say of diagram, it is an illustration of different parts or circuits that are connected or interrelated with each other in order to function.
Circuit Diagram is the exact (detailed) connection diagram of the Electronic/Electrical devices. A schematic diagram is a simple representation similar to the block diagram.
This is better. It is clear and it could be readily visualize on how the circuit diagram looks like so as with the schematic diagram.
