Difference between Multiplexer and Demultiplexer
1. Multiplexer :
Multiplexer is a data selector which takes several inputs and gives a single output.In multiplexer we have 2n input lines and 1 output lines where n is the number of selection lines.
2. Demultiplexer :
Demultiplexer is a data distributor which takes a single input and gives several outputs.In demultiplexer we have 1 input and 2n output lines where n is the selection line.
Difference between of Multiplexer and Demultiplexer :
|Multiplexer processes the digital information from various sources into a single source.
||Demultiplexer receives digital information from a single source and converts it into several sources
|It is known as Data Selector
||It is known as Data Distributor
|Multiplexer is a digital switch
||Demultiplexer is a digital circuit
|It follows combinational logic type
||It also follows combinational logic type
|It has 2n input data lines
||It has single input line
|It has a single output data line
||It has 2n output data lines
|It works on many to one operational principle
||It works on one to many operational principle
|In time division Multiplexing, multiplexer is used at the transmitter end
||In time division Multiplexing, demultiplexer is used at the receiver end
