Electronics Symbols Handbook - Free Download

This is a reproduction of CIE’s classic Electronics Symbols Handbook. The symbols listed in this handbook were collected after much research by the Technical Staff of Cleveland Institute of Electronics, Inc.

Electrical symbols and electronic circuit symbols are used for drawing schematic diagram.

Because the electronics industry has not adopted a single symbology standard, CIE has included the most frequently used symbols that represent each component.

The index lists components by general classification. The specific type of component is listed alphabetically under the general classification. CIE has attempted to illustrate the most common symbols in use today in the industry.

This handbook has been designed to serve as a handy reference guide.
