Ultra-Thin Dual and Quad Channel Bus Multiplexer/Demultiplexer to Reduce Board Space

Quad and Dual-Channel 4:1 and 2:1 Bus Switches
Quad and Dual-Channel 4:1 and 2:1 Bus Switches

Diodes Incorporated has announced four new quad and dual-channel 4:1 and 2:1 bus switches in an ultra-thin QFN (UQFN) package. The UQFN package allows the OEMs to increase the PCB density and reduce the product dimensions of PC notebooks and tablets as well as networking and telecommunications equipment. Discrete logic devices, such as bus multiplexers and demultiplexers remain a critical element of embedded design. The UQFN package measures just 3mm × 3mm × 0.65mm high, which is significantly smaller than comparable devices in standard packages. This smaller size allows the bus switches to be added to almost any design, even those with a high level of component density.

Note: More technical details can be found in the datasheet given at the bottom of this page.

 

All 4 devices have Near-Zero propagation delay and have 5Ω switches connecting inputs to outputs. They offer tri-state operation, presenting high-impedance outputs when the enable pin is held high.

 

Each channel in the bus can multiplex/demultiplex a single output from between two or four inputs. While the path for all channels is selected through common inputs, the channels benefit from a dedicated active-low enable control, allowing each channel to be operated independently.
