Why not just Build Array and then index it?

Trusted Enthusiast

- Build_Array increases unnecessarily the used memory..

- Two functions, just to select an input, unnecessarily overload the block diagram.


A little bigger solution, not too inefficient (just 1 extra buffer)...















In any case I like your proposal, so kudos.

I created a subVI for a multiplexer for my first project, which was probably not the best of designs. A multiplexer is useful feature to have on the functions pallet.


What about a demuliplexer?
