    Default Schematics: Triangles.

    What do the numbered triangles mean in a schematic? There are a number of them in the 5200 schematic, and I cannot figure out what they mean.
    Interesting stuff, here (COMPLETELY unbiased opinion, hehhehheh):

    Looking at the schematic in the library section, I think it means that all those points are tied together. So all the 3's are connected to each other and so on. It saves in having to draw the wires all over the place on the schematic. I could be wrong about this since they look hand drawn, and whoever drew them could have done whatever they wanted, but you should be able to verify it on the actual board.

    Well, without knowledge of what kind of triangle you are looking at, it is either a diode or a transistor (in particular, and integrated circuit). I don't know what the hell jb143 is talking about.

    I think this is the same schematic he's working off of.

    Some don't have numbers in them. I'd assume those go to +V
