I’m studying electronics in college I live in Europeand they are teaching us we should form our reference designations of elements when designing a circuit as according to EN This seems absurd to me, because it might be OK for a meat grinder and a generator to have the same designations G in some sort of a big automation system, but in a small electronics circuit to name both a diode and a resistor with Y3.216, just because they do something to current.

After looking it up on y32.61, it seems to me that the classical designations R for resistor, D for a diode, etc.

Reference designator – Wikipedia

I know this sort of thing is entirely voluntary, but I just want to know: Does that standard EN really apply to every type of electrical circuit? Are there any other European norms or ISO standards relating to reference designation?

However, you are forgetting the “table 2” that I have heard tell about. I can’t see the exact content of it to get the “real” designators they suggest because I’m not willing to pay for it.


Reference designator

This allows you to have a second character A basic reference designator has 1, 2, or 3 class designation letters if 3 letters the lst letter is X followed by a serial number.

Which standards you choose to follow is up to you but may be dictated by superiors, who may or may not understand.

I assume that you mean ” You’re aware that a system containing a meat grinder and a generator will have two components G1 and G2, while a circuit containing many resistors will have many R1, R2, R3, etc? Designation prefix is what I meant. OK; just wanted to be sure.

In that case, why is it so objectionable to name multiple related components with the same designator? Well, as I understand it the goal of EN is to create some sort of universal designation system, that extends this type of designation from typical electronic components to even non-electric parts.

Also, it names the components according to their purpose, rather to their type.

For example, a integrated circuit, containing a voltage regulator, saywill be designated, for example, R1. Also a diode and a resistor will be names R2 and R3. This is because the definition is “devices which limit or regulate the ans of energy stream, or material stream”. By that system the same example will be U1 for theD1 for the diode and R1 for the resistor. I just feel like this system is a lot more suitable when developing devices that are entirely electronic have no moving parts, etc.


Naming all your resistors R The meat grinder could be “GM1” and the generator “GV1” for example. I didn’t know y23.16 that, it certainly seems more meaningful this way. But still, my question was is there a standard that applies in the EU and defines designating component by what they are, instead of what y32.6 do? Table 2 does both at once – it has the what they do, followed by the what they are. That companies at least ans companies use them in their designs?

Personally I think it’s all rubbish.

I tend to have lots of subcircuits that are copied around to a few boards different expansion boards, etc I was numbering components in numerical regions, like R, C, and U for an FPGA and it’s supporting components.

I am now experimenting with just using a second letter for this. I personally like this I’ve felt a bit guilty the whole time.

Is this a bad idea? Lawrence Joy 51 2.
