Dual Analog Mux/Demux - TS3A5017DR

The TS3A5017 IC from Texas Instruments is a dual single-pole four-throw (4:1) analog switch. It is capable of switching both digital and analog signals up to 3.6V in either direction. The ability to handle analog signals makes this a great tool for audio and video signal routing as well as communication circuits. It’s also a handy way to read multiple analog sensors from a single ADC pin on your microcontroller.

Dual Analog Mux/Demux - TS3A5017DR Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Soldering

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.

3 Soldering

Skill Level: Competent - You will encounter surface mount components and basic SMD soldering techniques are required.

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

2 Programming

Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

3 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.

Customer Comments

  • Hey guys! If you decided to make a breakout board for this chip could you isolate the signal lines on the PCB from the rest of the traces? The capacitance from signal to gnd on your other breakout MUX was too high for me to use and I think its because the signal and gnd traces are adjacent to each other throughout the board. Otherwise keep up the good work!!
