A synthesis procedure must be based upon some cost function or functions. In many systems this cost function is associated with performance. But the usual cost function associated with switching circuits is associated with the cost of realization. Inspection of switching circuits indicates that many switching circuits are not used efficiently and that a measure of component efficiency is the ratio of data rate to component capacity or switching speed. The multiplex logic circuits are designed so that the above efficiency can be improved and as a consequence the number of circuits required can be substantially reduced. Special auxiliary circuits are required. The complexity of these auxiliary circuits is mentioned but not treated.
