Analog switches are defined just like the mechanical ones; Single Position, Single Throw, Double Position and so on.
They are also made to function just like the mechanical ones; as in Make-before-break or Break-before-Make.

CMOS Analog Multiplexer Switch
Analog Multiplexer IC Circuit

An Analog Switch is a Linear CMOS Integrated Circuit [IC].
The Analog Switch offers high switching speed and very low on resistance,
and very low leakage current when off.
Control pins [CMOS Decode Logic] are A1, A0, En depicted in the graphic.
The actual switch is normally a MOSFET, while the control pin is a TTL or CMOS digital input.
FETs are also used as the semiconductor switch.
The switches may be normally on or normally off.

General recommendations on Component Derating.

Analog Switches have many applications, and in many cases are smaller than mechanical switches.
However if the application requires a switch with a near zero on resistance a mechanical switch should be considered.
While if the application requires a long operational life, a semiconductor switch should be considered.
Of course there are many other considerations, always check the data sheet.

Analog Switch Issues;
There are a number of factors that effect system performance;
System Attenuation, caused by the ON-Resistance, and may also be frequency dependent.
Channel Isolation, in many cases caused by channel OFF leakage current, in multi-channel devices.
Crosstalk, caused by over-lap between switching channels, inter-switch capacitances, stray capacitances, OFF switch effects.
Noise, Thermal noise, crosstalk, leakages, switching transients, and transmission path pick-up.
Switching Rates, which is frequency dependent for the switch.
Operating Frequency, is limited by the time it takes the switch to change positions after receiving a command.
