Terminal

Tim Ziegler

The part of an electrical component where you can connect a wire (or in Circuit Scribe land, where connect your drawn wires with little round pads).

Every terminal has a different use: power, ground, input, output are examples. Terminals can take many different forms, but in general they’re an interface between a wire and a receiving connection on a component.

In our Circuit Scribe modules, the terminals are the magnetic feet.

The drawn “wires” connect to terminals on the modules.
