Block Diagram

ConceptDraw PRO
Discover the World of Visual Communication

"Block diagram is a diagram of a system in which the principal parts or functions are represented by blocks connected by lines that show the relationships of the blocks. They are heavily used in the engineering world in hardware design, electronic design, software design, and process flow diagrams. Block diagrams are a visual language for describing actions in a complex system, it is possible to formalize them into a specialized programmable logic controller (PLC) programming language. An example is the Function block diagram, one of five programming languages defined in part 3 of the IEC 61131 (see IEC 61131-3) standard."
[Block diagram. Wikipedia]

The vector stencils libraries:

  • Block Diagrams
  • Blocks with Perspective
  • Callouts
  • Connectors
  • Raised Blocks

from the solution Block Diagrams contain specific block diagram symbols such as arrows, input/output symbols, start/end symbols, processing symbols, conditional symbols, commenting symbols, callouts, connectors, etc. for ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software. The Block Diagrams solution is contained in a "What is a Diagram" area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Storage area networks (SAN). Computer and Network Examples
A Storage area network (SAN) is a dedicated network that provides access to data storage and operations only on the block level. SAN usually has own network of storage devices/elements and disk arrays that are connected with each other and to a remote data-sharing network. SANs are widely used for enhancing the storage devices (optical jukeboxes, disk arrays, tape libraries) that are accessible for networked servers. This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. It shows the hybrid of Storage area network (SAN) and Network Attached Storage (NAS) technologies.  Read more... →

ERD Symbols and Meanings
Crow's foot notation is used in Barker's Notation, Structured Systems Analysis and Design Method (SSADM) and information engineering. Crow's foot diagrams represent entities as boxes, and relationships as lines between the boxes. Different shapes at the ends of these lines represent the cardinality of the relationship. The Chen's ERD notation is still used and is considered to present a more detailed way of representing entities and relationships. To create an ERD, software engineers mainly turn to dedicated drawing software, which contain the full notation resources for their specific database design - ERD symbols and meanings. CS Odessa has released an all-inclusive Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution for their powerful drawing program, ConceptDraw PRO.  Read more... →
