Introduction to circuit blocks#


Complex circuits are often built from blocks of tested circuitry. This allows a modular approach to design and also provides a degree of assurance that the design is based upon something that has a proven track record.

Introduction to Modular Circuit Blocks#


Like all circuitry or other complex system, a block diagram is useful to see an overview of how the whole thing works.

Block diagram#

Additionally, a block diagram shows overall 'black box' functionality, such that the box describes its function and shows inputs and outputs. This allows for a modular approach in design, development and subsequent modifications and improvements to men made.

Replicable, exchangeable, upgradable#

This means that a module could be replaced with another solution that performs the same function.
