Abstract

The character set of Fig. 1 is designed to provide graphic characters for electronic circuit symbols, along with a complete text character set. The result can be used by a Text Editor program to produce documents having circuit schematics included with the text which describes them. Figs. 1 and 2 respectively show the character set and its capabilities. In addition to the characters and symbols shown in Fig. 2, other complex symbols may be developed using the character set of Fig. 1 including the coils and transformers shown in Fig. 3. These figures are copied directly from the original output of a printer using the character set.
