More Information About Multiplexers / Demultiplexers

What is an Analog Multiplexer / Demultiplexer?

A multiplexer (also sometimes spelled as multiplexor) is a device that can select from several different input signals and transmit either one or more output signals. A demultiplexer is a device that can take a single signal carrying multiple payloads and divide it into several streams. Some devices can do both multiplexing and demultiplexing functions and are therefore called multiplexers/demultiplexers. 

Types of Analog Multiplexers / Demultiplexers 

There are many different kinds of analog multiplexers / demultiplexers. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by Signal Type, Configuration, ON Resistance, Supply Voltage, Packaging Type and No. of Channels. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications. 
The most common values for No. of Channels are 2, 4 and 8 channels. We also carry analog multiplexers / demultiplexers with as many as 16 channels. ON Resistance can be between 3 O and 20 kO, with 100 O being the most common value.
