Im new to arduino and circuit development so please forgive me for not being up on the lingo, or if this is a dumb question (yes i have googled for it but im not even sure if im searching for the right thing)
I have several devices that are accessed by a serial console cable and I would like to create a switch that connect each device together dynamically
Some things are sensors that connect to a server, but i want to change the server it is connected to for testing, which is why i want to be able to connect any device to any device.
Im just not sure what to use, is there a single chip that can handle switching like this? do i use relays or transistors?
here is a example of what im trying to accomplish
device 1 to device 5 device 2 to device 6 device 3 to device 4 or dev 1 to dev 2 dev 3 to dev 5® dev 4 to dev 6
thanks for your help
