A DEMUX is a DE multiplexer that essentially reverts the task of a multiplexer, i.e., takes input from a MUX and splits it into various channels. The use of such multiplexers is due to its convenience and speed if you compare it with the separate transmission of data from all lines.
What are its uses?
Digital multiplexers are used for various tasks. The first and possibly the most common one is communication/telecommunications, where the multiplexers reduce the time of transmission considerably and reduce the requirement of separate lines and cables by combining it in one. Another use is in computer memory, where it reduces the requirement of wires and increases memory efficiency. It is also used to transmit data from computer systems of satellites for increased efficiency.
What features and characteristics should you keep in mind?
Though the basic design and function of the digital multiplexers are very similar, some characteristics are constant through brands and products, and some that are not. For example, in a regular 16 channel multiplexer, you have the 16 input points, the ability to control it with both analog and digital signals, a certain number of pins to connect with, etc. But some features vary with models like the size, weight, the ability to serve as both a MUX and a DEMUX, etc. which you should look for so that the product fits your requirements.
What makes them efficient?
Use of such multiplexers, both personally and industrially, cuts down on costs of using cables and wires to make separate connections, decreases the time of transmission and provides full control to its user to manage the input and output, ultimately improving the efficiency of the system it is installed in. Additional features like a broad temperature range for operations, the ability to use it as both a MUX and a DEMUX, lower ‘on’ resistance, etc. are beneficial. Some of the top brands that have the best sales of multiplexers include HiLetgo, NOYITO, DAOKI, etc.
