The most beneficial feature of ribbon cable assembly is flat and
flexible. This flexibility is very useful and make a ribbon cable
to be easily routed in confined spaces or in applications which
needs to connect two components together.
Ribbon cables are commonly used as interconnects for internal
peripherals in computers, for example hard drives, CD drives, and
floppy drives. On some older computer systems they were also used
for external connections. Unfortunately the ribbon-like shape
interferes with computer cooling by disrupting airflow within the
computer case which has limited the use of ribbon cables in
computer designs recently. Round cables have almost entirely
replaced ribbon cables for external connections and are
increasingly being used internally as well.The improvement and
innovation of spacing of the wires allowed this cables to be easily
terminated through the use of Insulation Displacement Connectors,
or IDC connectors. Because of the simple construction and low cost,
ribbon cables assembly are used today in most computers, printers,
and many electronic devices.
