What is a jumper?

 

A jumper is a removable small metal conductor bridge covered by a plastic box designed with two prongs. It is used to bypass or close a section of an electronic circuit – allowing flow of electricity on a set area.

Modern day jumpers can be found on a computer’s motherboard, hard drive, modems, sound cards, adapter cards and other hardware components. For hard disk drives (HDD), a jumper is used to set the HDD as master, slave or single storage mode of operation.

In recent years, computer components had switched to plug-in-play technology wherein users no longer have to deal with jumpers.
