Above code draws the circuit shown below. You have to use usetikzlibrary{circuits.logic.US} in the preamble of latex document. Also, make sure you have the recent version of texlive and you have hashed the tex data-base using texhash if you have installed pgf as standalone.
Notice in the figure below that we have added a dot to emphasis the connection. Usually this dot is drawn by using the arrow which does not cover the wire. To put the dot on the wire, we shift the starting point of arrow by ++ operator.
Give it a try. You’ll get to know.
NOTE : character ‘>’ may not be visible. It is used after ‘draw’. ### 0 thoughts on “Circuit drawing using Tikz (pgf)”
