    Can anyone help me identify what this symbol is? Still getting familiar with reading schematics.

    I was looking at a schematic and came across this symbol. I couldn't understand what it was or what it's being used for. I tried googling what I could. I found that G is generally used for generators and power supplies. I looked up symbols and didn't find anything close enough. Maybe this is old?

    DC Switching linear regular design question

    Hello, I am fairly new to electronics design (I have a mech e background), and am designing a board that requires dropping 12v to 5v with a large current requirement (up to 8A@5V). In a bid to save on BOM, I took a shot at creating my own design vs buying one off the shelf, using the...

    Can I add 120V lines to the schematic as shown without frying anything?

    This is an electrical question, but I want to explain the application first: I have an LED fireplace that I'm putting in to replace a wall heater. I wired it to run through the wall thermostat, but when the thermostat turns the fireplace on it just turns on the lights, then you have to manually...

    MAX8815 DC to DC step up converter circuit

    Hey, I have a question regarding a schematic I made, which doesn't work. Maybe someone could help me out. I tried to make a board which would take a 1.5V Battery and turn it into 5V. I used this IC: https://www.mouser.de/datasheet/2/256/MAX8815A-1516131.pdf I oriented myself with the schematic...

    How were "Outside Foil" connections on vintage foil capacitors documented?

    In another thread, I learned about the "Outside Foil" designation on one lead of some vintage foil capacitors. How was this connection specified on schematics or other documentation? Here is an example of the indication.

    Troubleshooting/repair Hameg 1500 scope

    Hi there to you all, I need some help with a troubleshooting/ repair. I have an analog/digital oscilloscope Hameg HM1500, it has some RTC problem, it presents a partial sweep. I think is the horizontal circuit, that's either missing a voltage or there is some faulty component. The only problem...
