We were taught ayt our school about data selectors or multiplexers as basically a OR gate taking input of some decoder (Binary to Decimal,Bin2Hex,etc.) with an EXTRA INPUT Lines attached to the AND gates and the output of AND gate is fed to OR gate Something along the line of this:
This has confused me (google resources added to that confusion.It put me to conflict between what taught at school and what's there).
Can someone explain:
- Why do we need Bin2< desired_base > DECODER
- How they help us select a particular input over the others
How the receiver knows what kind of input the given output from multiplexer maps to Since just a HIGH or 1 can represent different combo of Inputs
In simple words how the DECODER or more appropriately said DEMULTIPLEXER revert/decodes back the INPUT
- Applications of MUX and how it used in those applications (can you give a big picture of it)
