I'm wiring an analogue switch (74HCT4066N) to throw a grounded switch. The datasheet says that the recommended Vsw value should be between GND and Vcc. This means that it's important which of Y or Z I should connect to ground. Which (Y or Z) should I connect to ground to ensure that my voltage stays positive? (The other end of my switch has a positive voltage relative to ground)

Thanks!

All '4066 switches are bidirectional and bipolar, provided the voltage specs are not violated. They may be connected either way around.

    \$\begingroup\$ +1 Voltage specs not violated means that both ends of the switch must always be between GND and Vcc for the HCT4066. \$\endgroup\$ Jul 25, 2015 at 20:56
