Applications where reliability is critical and downtime is not an option represent the primary use areas for a new line of cables and cable-connector assemblies that reportedly have flex lives exceeding 100 million cycles. These long-flex-life cables are said to operate reliably even with bend radii of less than 50 mm. Other features include consistent EMI shielding effectiveness, high packaging density, tough outer jackets, and precise impedance and capacitance and low attenuation.
