Difference Between These Circuits?
« on: May 04, 2018, 02:11:26 PM »
Hi people I'm new here and recently learned of my love for building electronics.

I'm curious if these would essentially be the same circuit or might they behave differently?

The only difference is the order where the diode and transistor and output cap connect. When I bread board it these connections are on the same bus.

As far as I can see they should be the same and behave the same. Just a different way of drawing schematic.

I agree with cooder, they are identical.

If you breadboard it, you'll see that they are the same. Another way is to download eagle, draw up one schematic and then start shifting the pieces around without breaking the nets. You can transform one to the other. Also, you would learn a bit of eagle that way  8)
