Symbolic Design Entry

  • Gert Voland


Symbolic design entry, also called schematic entry, describes the process of entering the circuit schematics of an electronic design into a computer. This is done with the aid of a special graphics program, the schematic editor. The schematic entry usually represents the first step of a design process. At this point there are two major goals to be reached: firstly, the graphical documentation; secondly, the starting point for further, automatic design steps.
