Manufacturers : Cables and connectors : Data and communications cables

Communications and electronics cables are used today in a broad array of applications, many of which require that the cable carry high frequency signals over long distances. Communications cables, such as cables used in telephone lines, typically consist of insulated copper cores, the layer surrounding the copper being formed from an insulating polymeric material. Local area networks typically use category 5 cable as the interconnect cable. Category 5 represents a standard set forth by ANSI, and the TIA/EIA group. The Telecommunications Industry Association and the Electronics Industry Association (TIA/EIA) have developed standards which specify specific categories of performance for cable impedance, attenuation, skew and particularly crosstalk isolation. A category 5 cable is required to have 38 dB of isolation between the twisted pairs at 100 MHz and a category 6 cable is required to have 42 dB of isolation between the twisted pairs at 100 MHz. Fiber optic, coaxial, and copper pair cables are widely used in the telecommunications industry. High pair count copper cables, containing individual twisted pairs of conductors, are frequently used as feeder cables between telephone customers and the telephone company central office. Broadband coaxial cables are often found in cable television (CATV) systems. Fiber optic cables are increasingly used to transmit video, voice, and data. Optical fiber offers advantages of small size, lightweight, large bandwidth and high transmission data rates. Multi-conductor cables are common for transferring multiple currents to and from electronic systems and devices. A differential data transmission cable comprises a structure in which a shield is provided so as to cover a pair of conductors each coated with an insulator. Cables for connecting a computer with peripheral devices including keyboard, mouse, scanner or an external data storage device, have been increasingly standardized. For transmission speeds or data rates below 12 Mbits per second, universal serial bus (USB) cables are used. For higher data rates, of 100 Mbits per second and above, IEEE1394 cables have more and more come into use.
