If you need to draw complete circuit diagrams, you can use circuitikz. Some examples can be found on TeXample.

run texdoc pst-circ for the documentation

My colleague Dr. Kimmo Silvonen and I decided to open source the circuit diagram macros we use for preparing our lecture material. Feel free to use it, give feedback and add new symbols:


There are other good packages (circuitikz is my personal favourite), but these macros are easy to use and require neither extra packages nor knowledge about PGF/TikZ.

Nice! Could you perhaps add a short example of its use (a simple circuit, for example)? – morbusg Dec 21 '11 at 10:58
It looks interesting and handy, nice work. – Harold Cavendish Dec 21 '11 at 12:27
