As we consider the electrical engineer, it is easy to imagine the aspects of their trade. We envision soldering irons and oscilloscopes, electrical components and circuit boards, wires and tools. But amongst all of the practical tools of the electrical engineer, there is also an artistic tool; a tool that is as aesthetically pleasing as it is functional: the schematic.

The schematic shows the path of electricity, the components it will pass through, and the layout of those components. But it also demonstrates the aesthetic of the artist and the structural beauty of the design. This strange duality embodies the nature of the schematic.

Bob’s creativity, his spirit, his vision, and his meticulous nature are reflected in the schematics he created, and those created from his work. They are a documentation of the history and progression of his innovation in an artistic and beautiful format.

The Bob Moog Foundation is committed to the preservation of Bob’s legacy through these incredible schematics and mechanical drawings, and is in the process of amassing an incredible array of these documents for this process.

We intend to progressively post them for your examination, learning, and enjoyment.
