I among a couple of my friends all have similar triple monitor setups and are trying to figure out how to have both our personal gaming rigs and a docking station for work laptops easily switchable on the monitors. we’re looking into KVM switches and while I have found a couple that may work,I thought it would be fun to try my hand at building my own since the general concept is fairly straightforward, so I was wondering if anyone might have some good resources on building your own? I would like it to be compatible with DP 1.2+
I’ve found a couple articles that basically outline how to make a usb switch and call it KVM but i would need a bit more than that. the high data rates of the display connections would require fine tuning of the RC of the device, plus just the number of pins would definitely add a bit of complexity. both concepts that I understand generally but not enough to really design for.
