Colleagues,

Is there a practical solid state multiplexor for a signal with levels on the order of 50 micro-V? I’ve done this in the past with reed relays, but now I need to increase the switching rate, and the relays will not be fast enough.

Thanks,
Nick

Try FET bus switches like 74CBT3253 or other '3253 chips.

I've seen 3253 used in a ham radio SDR receiver - placed just after the RF BPF, so it can switch microvolt signals. It has low on resistance, and for low distorsion you need to bias the signal pins to VDD/2.
