Cables are often the last component considered when designing an electronic system. However, cables are really the system’s lifeline; if a cable fails, the entire system can stop functioning. Cable performance is based on a number of factors including reliability, durability, and signal integrity. Electrical, mechanical, and environmental stressors can negatively affect good cable performance This presentation investigates the impact of demanding conditions on cable systems. It discusses the significance of using advanced materials specifically engineered to ensure reliable performance in the most challenging environments.

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • Electrical, mechanical, and environmental factors that affect cable performance
  • Importance of selecting materials engineered to withstand harsh conditions
  • Unique challenges of harsh environments such as those encountered in aerospace, oil and gas, and semiconductor industries
  • Proven test methods to ensure reliable performance
