The article focuses on analog multiplexing. Analog multiplexer is a switch, which alternates between input signals at a high rate. Modern multiplex systems carry much more than the pure signals themselves. By grouping data into packets, multiplexers can achieve a high level of sophistication by adding information like sync fields, headers, timing and metadata.
