    I'd venture a guess that it's not available. I'm curious, though - what do you need it for? It's not like you can open it up and start modifying... :)

    That's not a schematic, if that's what you meant. Otherwise I'm not sure what you are getting at.

    I doubt anyone but Apple's engineers have schematics for the iPad. Even repair shops will find that kind of detail of little use. These days it is cheaper to replace the board/component than take the time (equipment and training) to do onboard repairs. Like so many older tech skills, component level repair has become a hobby.


    Sure, a picture s worth a thousand words, but not always the right words. :D

    twerppoet types much wisdom.

    The USAF stopped training for component level general repair back in 1988 if memory serves. While I was grateful for the training I got in '86, I haven't used it for a business application since 1990.

    USAF 1982-1986. Digital Flight Simulator Technician.

    I miss the magic of component electronics; though even then the writing was on the wall.

    In college I had to memorize schematics galore for large aircraft. The worst was the DC-10 electrical schematic. Still gives me nightmares...........sorry off topic...

    can't help with an iPad app, but as a small time designer/hobbyist on a PC i use 'circuit wizard' from Maplins. has circuit simulation on schematic as well as pcb auto placement and routing. also virtual test instruments

    for what it costs, it is very powerful, allows experiments for designs if you need to quell an itch, without needing to be breadboard up a design

    check it out :)

    Ah, well, confession time. What I most miss is getting paid to troubleshoot and fix the stuff. I was good at it. I was never into design, beyond seeing what else I could make a toy/kit do. Usually a broken toy or circuit kit. I like fixing stuff. :)

    perhaps fixing games consuls is a possible way for you to go then, either buy broken to repair and re-sell, or repair broken ones sent to you.

    in my case, as an electronics engineer i always think i can do whatever better than what has been done before :), i work mainly in bespoke security systems, often re-design an item to be a better fit, or fit more situations than the original concepts required, once i conquer the problem i move on, not wanting to keep re-inventing the wheel so to speak.
