RF switches are very important to networks and their administrators. These devices allow signals to be routed in different ways and in different forms to a number of different users. Any large-scale network or video application will require the use of a switch to make use of signals.

One example of the operating capacity of RF switches is also one of the most popular products on the video-game market. This product is known as the Nintendo RF Switch. A brief explanation of the way in which this product operates can shed a lot of light on the workings of other switches.

The Nintendo RF Switch is a godsend to the gamer who is using an outdated television. Many televisions have only coaxial input jacks, which are useless when it comes to hooking up a gaming box. The Nintendo switch features proper ports for both the system and the television, and it translates the signal from the gaming unit into one that can be used by the television. Plug the ends in, and you're ready to play, even on a old TV!

RF Switches: Beyond Nintendo

RF switches operate in a similar fashion, taking RF transmissions and making them usable by computers and other devices. Images and data streams quickly flow to the desired source in the desired format. These switches are designed with many applications in mind, and as such are available in a range of sizes suitable for projects large and small.
