Electrical Symbols — Semiconductor
Semiconductors are crystalline or amorphous solids with distinct electrical characteristics. They are of high resistance — higher than typical resistance materials, but still of much lower resistance than insulators. Their resistance decreases as their temperature increases, which is behavior opposite to that of a metal. Finally, their conducting properties may be altered in useful ways by the deliberate, controlled introduction of impurities into the crystal structure, which lowers its resistance but also permits the creation of semiconductor junctions between differently-doped regions of the extrinsic semiconductor crystal. The behavior of charge carriers which include electrons, ions and electron holes at these junctions is the basis of diodes, transistors and all modern electronics.

Most of the electrical symbols can be changed in their appearance, styles and colors according to users' requirements. Electrical symbols are used to represent various electrical and electronic devices in a schematic diagram of an electrical or electronic circuit.
The following table lists some semiconductor electrical symbols in our electrical diagram software.

Semiconductor devices can display a range of useful properties such as passing current more easily in one direction than the other, showing variable resistance, and sensitivity to light or heat. Because the electrical properties of a semiconductor material can be modified by doping, or by the application of electrical fields or light, devices made from semiconductors can be used for amplification, switching, and energy conversion.

Computer networks nowadays are spread all across the world. The large number of parameters, such as geographic scale or communication protocols, can divide networks. One of the most common types of networks is called local area network (LAN). It convenient to represent network examples by means of diagrams.
This local area network (LAN) diagram provides an easy way to see the way the devices in a local network are interacted. The diagram uses a library containing specific symbols to represent network equipment , media and the end-user devices such as computers (PC, mac, laptop) , network printer, hubs, server and finally a modem. There are two types of network topologies: physical and logical. The current diagram represents precisely a physical type of LAN topology because it refers to the physical layout of a local network equipment.

Drawing an electric circuit plan with all the wiring might seem very complex. If you ever felt afraid to ask how to use electrical and telecom plan software, then it’s time to actually start from altering the templates from the Solution Park. You won’t even notice the moment when you would become an experienced user.
This electrical and telecommunication floor plan plan presents electrical and telecommunication devices located in a country house floor plan. Each electrical or telecom device on this plan is indicated with the particular symbol. Using standard Electrical and Telecommunication symbols makes this floor plan clear for anybody who will be involved into construction process. All the electrical and telecom symbols used in the current floor plan are placed to a legend. This electrical and telecom floor plan can be included as a separate piece into a package of building documentation.

If you have a small budget to design a computer network, you have to be very careful. One of the most cheap technologies to implement is a bus network topology, however it has many disadvantages. For instance, if the network cable is somehow damaged, the entire network won't work.
This diagram illustrates a so-called "Bus" network topology. This type of network arrangement means that each computer or other device is linked to a main link (bus). The end nodes are shown as a circle. The links to the bus are depicted as solid vertical lines. The bus is shown as a bold horizontal line. This diagram can serve as a template for creating logical or physical network diagrams. The set of vector libraries supplied with ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution contains the symbols of all LAN and WLAN elements required for creating network diagrams of any configuration.

When it comes to system construction, a class diagram is the most widely used diagram. UML Class Diagrams is a type of static structure diagram that is used for general conceptual modeling of the systematics of the application. Such a diagram would illustrate the object-oriented view of a system. The object orientation of a system is indicated by a class diagram. It describes the structure of a system by showing the general issues,classes of a system, attributes, operations, interfaces, inheritance, and the relationships between them.

Comparing ConceptDraw DIAGRAM to Omnigraffle - Cross-platform product. While most drawing tools are designed for use on one operating system, ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is available as two independent and concurrent versions on both Macintosh (macOS) and PC (Windows).
License is per named user. That means you can use a single license for Macintosh and PC. Users can install at work and at home with a single license.

Network infrastructure planning is a very important process in the network construction, and the share of time allocated to this within the scope of the entire project may reach 60-80%. A competent and thorough approach to planning contributes to the quick investment return, and also increases the reliability and flexibility of the final system, reducing the probability of additional costs related to the incorrect implementation.
Any planning begins with an analysis of the business requirements to the final system. Basic network parameters, which should be assessed are the scalability, accessibility, cost, speed and safety.
Speed and cost are often mistaken for the most important parameters, and the rest of the parameters aren't even remembered. This is not entirely correct. Initially, it is necessary to assess the business plans for the future, because sometimes it is more profitable to invest more money in the beginning. If the business is to develop, then, consequently, demands on
