Abstract : The patent relates to a back pressure sensitive fluidic switching mechanism. A fluidic device incorporating this mechanism will switch from one output receiver channel to another under the effect of back pressure produced by a control signal issuing from a control port disposed at, in or near the output channel of the device. Decoupling vents are provided downstream of the control ports in each output receiver channel so as to insulate the device from the effects of load impedance.
