November 2013 USB Keyboard circuit symbol

Post by CollieJim » Tue Oct 29, 2013 3:41 am

Hi,

The "Quick and Easy USB Keyboard Input" article in the November 2013 issue uses a symbol that is a circle with a diagonal line through it.

What is it? What is a good reference?

Thanks,
Jim

Hello Jim:

The symbol you are referring to is simply a screw terminal. It's not a component of any kind. It's simply a way to show an interconnect. You can see in the photo of the project that the author uses a two row 'barrier strip' type terminal block assembly. It's just a physical attachment point!

Enjoy...

Kelly

Thanks. I finally remembered to check back. I forgot to tick the 'Notify' box. It would be good if it were ticked by default.
