Abstract

A switch is provided for switching a twinaxial cable device between two computer systems. In the past, the switch required that the device to be switched was at the end position of the cable and would not work when the device was connected in the cable through mode. The present switch is capable of switching a device connected to a computer system in either the cable through or non-cable through mode.
