  • Patent number: 10002585
    Abstract: For selectively transmitting signals, a data lane interface communicates signals of at least one data lane of a serial bus. A video interface port receives a video display signal from a video card. A traffic circuit transmits the signals of the at least one data lane and the video display signal to a high-speed signal combiner in response to determining that the high-speed signal combiner is processing the signals of the at least one data lane and the video display signal for output as a combined video display signal. Else the traffic circuit transmits the video display signal to a video output port in response to determining that the high-speed signal combiner is not processing the signals of the at least one data lane and the video display signal for output as the combined video display signal.
