20130203292ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR WITH A BUILT-IN SIGNAL GAIN CIRCUIT - An electrical connector includes a casing, a housing, a terminal set, a printed circuit board, a cover body, and a signal gain circuit. The signal gain circuit is electrically connected to the printed circuit board and arranged on the printed circuit board. The electrical connector is arranged at a front panel of a computer and is electrically connected to an external electronic apparatus. Signals transmitted between the computer and the external electronic apparatus will not be weakened because of the signal gain circuit.08-08-2013
20130196543ELECTRONIC DEVICE AND SWITCH METHOD THEREOF - An electronic device including a switch unit and a socket is provided. The switch unit has an output end, a first input end, a second input end and a control end. The control end is coupled to the first input end. The socket has an intake cavity on which a first terminal and a second terminal are disposed. The first terminal is electrically connected to the first input end, and the second terminal is electrically connected to the second input end. When the intake cavity holds a plug and the control end receives a high level voltage, the control end switches the first input end to the output end. When the control end receives a ground voltage, the control end switches the second input end to the output end.08-01-2013
