    So I'm trying to build a circuit that works like a 4PDT toggle switch (or more poles), but don't know which IC I should use. I'm thinking about using the CD4053, but perhaps there are better ICs to accomplish my task.

    The circuit is to switch a custom data device between 2 computers. The device should only be connected to one computer at a time, but the switching occurs when both computers are OFF, so no risk of damage. Device itself uses the Sata port on both comps, so I need to switch Transmit+, Transmit-, Receive+, and Receive-.

    So the IC will only be switching Data wires between two powered-down computers. So can anyone recommend me an IC to accomplish this task?
