This package provides a set of macros for naturally typesetting electrical and (somewhat less naturally, perhaps) electronical networks.
It was born mainly for writing my own exercise book and exams sheets for the Elettrotecnica courses at Politecnico di Milano, Italy. I wanted a tool that was easy to use, with a lean syntax, native to LaTeX, and supporting directly PDF output format.
So I based everything with the very impressive (if somewhat verbose at times) TikZ package.
- Tikz/PGF graphics library, version 3
- xstrings not older than 2009/03/13
The stable version is available on ctan and is included within the major latex distributions(Texlive, Miktex). If you want to test the latest version, have a look at http://circuitikz.github.io/circuitikz/. There you can find the latest git-version as a single file, just copy it to your project or to your local tex tree.

If you want to use the git version, just append a git to the package name:

The available versions are 0.8.3, 0.7, 0.6 and 0.4.
In ConTeXt, only the 0.8.3 version is available for the time being; you can use it with
Be aware that options can (and do) change between versions, so you have to check them manually.

circuitikz – Draw electrical networks with TikZ
The package provides a set of macros for naturally typesetting electrical and (somewhat less naturally, perhaps) electronic networks.
It is designed as a tool that is easy to use, with a lean syntax, native to LaTeX, and directly supporting PDF output format. It has therefore been based on the very impressive PGF/TikZ package.
