    multiplexing of analog signals

      hi

         

         In a oximeter system we have to use Red LED and IR LED, and photo diode, these Red and IR connected in such a manner cathode of Red led is connected to IR anode and Anode of Red is connected to IR cathode switching them at a frequency 1KHZ. this signal sensed by the photo diode has to two components Red and IR . what is way to seperate out them , whether we have to use mux to seperate. if so that mux is internal mux or external , if it is internal how firmware should be used.if it is external how can we use it.

         

      Thanks

          There are HW and Software controlled muxes in Creator. Place them on

             

          your schematic, right click, and look at their datasheets for the APIs that control

             

          them. Note muxes are NOT low RDSon muxes, so you cannot mux much power

             

          with them, they are mainly meant for small signal. You could parallel two or more

             

          muxes to get the effective switch R down, examine datasheets for their RDSon

             

          to see if that would work for you.
