Developing Multi-Device Switch with Hot-Key Capabilities
After thoroughly assessing design requirements and challenges, Nectar delivered an easy-to-use, color-coded, software-free SOHO KVM switch design. Designers made connecting color-coded cables, which match switching buttons and ports on the front and back of the unit, a snap. The universally available USB 2.0 standard for connecting keyboards, computer mice, and peripherals also extends the switch’s usability as a USB hub. Nectar added hot-key switching functionality to improve the user experience, and the switch supports video monitors with display visual interface digital and analog (DVI-I) connections.
