Constructing Circuit Schematics Using MS Word

Prepared by: P. David Fisher and John A. Kelley Department of Electrical Engineering Michigan State University File: circut_symbols_3.doc Revised: 8/30/99 Overview Students and faculty often need to document electric, electronic, and digital-logic circuits by incorporating schematics into documents. To assist individuals in constructing circuits, we have consulted the appropriate IEEE standards for graphic symbols and then generated symbol sets that can be rapidly assembled to construct both simple and complex circuits. To construct circuit schematics using these symbols, one needs to know a little about how to copy, move, group, and rotate objects using MS Word. A good exercise for a beginner would be to copy the sample circuit given on page 7 of this report and paste this copy on the workspace provided on page 8. Select the object, ungroup it and then take apart the circuit. Once it has been taken apart, then re-assemble it in the workspace. Finally, group the individual elements (icons) to form a single objecti.e., the original circuit schematic. Finally, copy this object and paste it into a frame in a sample document. Once these skills have been acquired, the quality of the document will be enhanced significantly. It is recommended that circuit schematics drawn for one document be saved in a circuit-template file. By following this practice, one leverages writing projects off one another, and this saves time. This is so because future reports are much easier to generate since existing circuits can be reused. For example, search the template file for similar circuit architectures and components, and then cut and paste to obtain the new circuit. Please send comments and suggestions to P. David Fisher at fisher@egr.msu.edu.

Example Circuit
For practice, you might want to try replacing circuit components with other components, or adding on to this circuit. Note: the individual icons have been grouped to form a simple object. The object has been grouped with an invisible framing rectangle that then allows you to move the object and wrap text with increased ease. The figure caption has been constructed using a text frame.
