We propose a coupling scheme, where two or more flux qubits with different eigenfrequencies share Josephson junctions with a coupler loop devoid of its own quantum dynamics. Switchable two-qubit coupling is realized by tuning the frequency of the AC magnetic flux through the coupler to a combination frequency of two of the qubits. The coupling allows any or all of the qubits to be simultaneously at the degeneracy point and can change sign.
