The printed circuit board assembly (PCB) has revolutionized our lives in ways that could not have been envisioned when they were created early last century. Now, with the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), the PCB is becoming more and more complex and some worry that designers are not keeping their skills up. This has become a concern when people talk to low volume PBC manufacturers in particular. New Electronicsandnbsp;tackled this topic earlier this year.
Ethernet Cables are categorized (cat) into various parameters; which distinguishes them from one another. This category is subject to change with the addition of new testing standards and the introduction of new cable features. It’s through these categorize you can quickly place each cable to its specific application. These cables include Category 5 (cat5) cable, Category 5 Enhanced Cable (cat5e) and Category 6 cable (cat6).
These Ethernet cables are manufactured differently, but they all consist of 4 twisted pairs of wires, which helps to prevent any current and interruption that might occur in the pairs.
Cat5 Ethernet Cable
As earlier mentioned, this cable consists of four twisted pairs of copper wire with an RJ–45 connector at the tip. This network cabli
