PathWay USB Type A Switch


This Transform controls an Electro Standards 4506 PathWay USB Type A Switch. The switch provides the capability of sharing a single USB interface device connected to the common port among two or three other devices connected to the A, B, and C USB ports.


The Command port is a discrete port. An Enum set, also named Command, is associated with it. The values of the Enums are:

0 = Invalid command

1 = USB A

2 = USB B

3 = USB C

The value of the Command port (on the Transform) controls which USB (hardware) port is connected through the switch.


The Response port is a message port. When the status of the switch changes a message is transmitted.
