Schematic understanding
« on: October 21, 2020, 06:40:54 PM »
Hi

I am quite confident in electronics and schematics, but as I do my builds, I like to refer to the schematics diagram to the build to understand and learn about the circuits better. However, in the Multiplex Echo Machine schematic, there is one bit that has thrown me. On the power regulation circuit, just before D1, there are 2 traces marked 4 & 8. Where do these go as there is no reference?

I know I am not missing a component, as checked those off and accounted for all of them. It does not seem logical that they go to any of the IC chips. That leaves SW1, but again, does not seem like logical connections.

Don't learn nuthin' if you don't ask :)

Those are the power and ground pins for IC1.

Thank you very much for your reply.

I had literally just figured that out :) Thanks for the confirmation though.
