  Switch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A biased switch is one containing a spring that returns the actuator to a certain position.
Switches can be designed to respond to any type of mechanical stimulus: for example, vibration (the trembler switch), tilt, air pressure, fluid level (the float switch), the turning of a key (key switch), linear or rotary movement (the limit switch or microswitch), or presence of a magnetic field (the reed switch).
The advantage of this type of switch is that the liquid metal flows around particles of dirt and debris that might otherwise prevent the contacts of a conventional switch from closing.

 Switch: Tutte le informazioni su Switch su Encyclopedia.it
Nella tecnologia delle reti informatiche, uno switch, in inglese letteralmente commutatore, è un dispositivo di rete che inoltra selettivamente i pacchetti ricevuti verso una porta di uscita.
L'uso esclusivo di switch per collegare nodi (con esclusione di hub e bridge) consente di aumentare l'efficienza di una tipica rete 10Base-T di un fattore 10, portandola dunque a competere con una più costosa rete 100Base-T provvista esclusivamente di hub, e quindi con topologia logica a bus.
Nel gergo delle reti, uno switch separa i domini di collisione connessi alle sue porte, ovvero se due calcolatori collegati a porte diverse trasmettono contemporaneamente, non si verifica una collisione, e i due pacchetti possono attraversare lo switch contemporaneamente.

 Network switch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A switch can connect Ethernet, Token Ring, Fibre Channel or other types of packet switched network segments together to form a heterogeneous network operating at OSI Layer 2 (though there may be complications caused by the different MTUs of the standards).
A switch isolates ports, meaning that every received packet is sent out only to the port on which the target may be found (assuming the proper port can be found; if it is not, then the switch will broadcast the packet to all ports).
Switches have difficulty in monitoring traffic because each port is isolated until it transmits data, and even then only the sending and receiving ports are connected.

 Define switch - a definition from Whatis.com
In the traditional circuit-switched telephone network, one or more switches are used to set up a dedicated though temporary connection or circuit for an exchange between two or more parties.
In a wide area packet-switched network such as the Internet, a switch determines from the IP address in each packet which output port to use for the next part of its trip to the intended destination.
Switches are found at the backbone and gateway levels of a network where one network connects with another and at the subnetwork level where data is being forwarded close to its destination or origin.

 Context Switch Encyclopedia @ CompleteIdiotsGuide.com (Complete Idiots Guide)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
A context switch is the computing process of storing and restoring the state of a CPU (the context) such that multiple processes can share a single CPU resource.
Context switches are usually computationally intensive and much of the design of operating systems is to optimize the use of context switches.
The extreme case is the barrel processor architecture, which switches between threads of execution on every cycle.

 The Switch Myth
Even though great strides in both track and switch technologies were made in the 50's, 60's and beyond, the myth today remains a thorn in the side for monorail proponents.
Switches exist at each terminal station for reversal of train direction, another switch near the southern terminal accesses the maintenance/storage facility.
With the four-mile system, there are switches at the terminal stations for direction reversal and access to the maintenance/storage facility, as well as two switches along the route to facilitate bypassing and special short runs.

 Howstuffworks "How LAN Switches Work"
Switches are another fundamental part of many networks because they speed things up.
Switches allow different nodes (a network connection point, typically a computer) of a network to communicate directly with one another in a smooth and efficient manner.
Switches that provide a separate connection for each node in a company's internal network are called LAN switches.
