Q: Are multiplexers mainly used to increase the amount of data that can be sent over the network within a certain amount of time and bandwidth? ¶
Q: Is a multiplexer usually required to break the single data stream back down into the original streams? ¶
Q: Is a multiplexer often used with a complementary demultiplexer on the receiving end? ¶
Q: Is a multiplexer also called a data selector? ¶
Q: Is a multiplexer combined together into a single piece of equipment, which is conveniently referred to as a "multiplexer"? ¶
A: Yes, Both circuit elements are needed at both ends of a transmission link because most communications systems transmit in both directions.
Q: Are multiplexers economizing connections over a single channel? ¶
A: Yes, and by connecting the multiplexer's single output to the demultiplexer's single input.
Q: Is a multiplexer a special type of analog switch that connects one signal selected from several inputs to a single output? ¶
Q: Are multiplexers sometimes convenient for designing general purpose logic? ¶
A: Yes, because if the demultiplexer's input is always true, the demultiplexer acts as a decoder.
Q: Is a multiplexer an isosceles trapezoid with the longer parallel side containing the input pins and the short parallel side containing the output pin? ¶
