A Bus Switch, also known as a Digital Switch is a semiconductor device that turns on and off an electrical connection. Bus Switches are PCB mount devices that act in the same way as a normal mechanical switch. Unlike a mechanical switch, a Bus Switch has no moving parts, ensuring greater performance. RS offer a range of high-quality electronic components from leading brands including Texas Instruments, Nexperia, Maxim Integrated, Analog Devices and ON Semiconductor.
A Bus Switch is an array of high-speed, very low-resistance CMOS switches which are used to transmit a group of signals called a signal bus.
The compact ICs are used for high-speed digital signal transmission. Bus switches or digital switches are used in a vast array of electronic applications. Some of the most common are
