I'm having trouble with making a schematic; I have 5 inputs and 4 outputs (dipswitch and 4 leds) basically depends on the first input (then on the other 2 inputs) which led is going to turn on. enter image description here

The second image is an example I'm following but it has 3input and 3output, so I don't get how to use that structure but with 5I/4O

enter image description here

  • \$\begingroup\$ Can you add a photo of the DIP switches you are considering? Most only have a single-throw contact - normally open. You seem to be looking for a double-throw, changeover type. \$\endgroup\$ – Transistor Feb 16 at 22:43
  • \$\begingroup\$ I'm following an example (basically is a small project for a class and the example 'applies' for all the projects but I just don't get how to connect mine; thanks for the help \$\endgroup\$ – Asuza Feb 16 at 22:49
  • \$\begingroup\$ The "schematic" you have posted seems to be a cross between a proper schematic and a wiring diagram and doesn't use a proper symbol for a switch. However, we can see that there is one wire in and out of each switch so, as I suspected, it's a single-pole, normally open switch and you can't do changeover contacts as you seem to be indicating in your first diagram. Please edit your question and add in the wording of the actual assignment you have been given. \$\endgroup\$ – Transistor Feb 16 at 22:53
