    Hi everyone.

    I want to measure the thickness of plastic. Because of the expensive devices for transducer I just have one device that I can read the data from it. But I want to measure 4 different points with some delay. I want to design a switching box that the input comes from the ultrasonic device and send it to point A and measure the thickness of point A and after 1 second send the signal to point B ad measure the point B and after 1 second send the signal to point C and measure the point C and the same for point D. The switching frequency should be 5MHz. Is anyone can help me ?

    Thanks
    Mostafa

    Welcome to AAC!
    If you are redirecting the signal at 1 second intervals why do you want a switching frequency of 5MHz? Or do you mean that the switch must be able to pass 5MHz signals?
    What voltage and current need to be switched?

    Another point in question: How does 5MHz relate to, "ultrasonic"?

    I meant the transducer's signal has 5MHz frequency so the switching box frequency should greater than 5MHz

    Yes The switch must be able to pass 5MHz signals because of transducer's frequency. I have not received my package yet to know about the current and voltage but I wanted to know how to design the switching box

    Don't you have a datasheet you can link to?
