This report describes high voltage multiplexer comprising as the switching elements for each channel thereof a pair of series connected double diffused metal oxide semiconductor transistors connected source-to-source to obtain very high off resistance, with optical links comprising LEDs to switch the pairs of transistors on and off. A logic chip controls the switching of the transistors in accordance with externally applied signals. Means are provided for rapidly discharging any voltage remaining on the gate-to-source capacity of the series-connected transistors upon the switching off of any channel.
