Circuit board design can often fall into the segmentation pattern; while layout designers are well-acquainted with off-board I/O, less thought goes into the details of this connection. Cabling is an essential part of any electronic system, and a failure to account for design parameters results in unreliable and intermittent connectivity. Cable assembly manufacturers can greatly simplify the process by translating system designers’ needs into a cable that adheres to industry standards while meeting the operating requirements of the installation.
Cable specification will incorporate the final assembly’s flexibility, shielding, insulation, and structure requirements. Requests for cable manufacturing should consider all of the following items for inclusion:
