- TDR (time-domain-reflectometry) and transmission measurements.
A TDR oscilloscope and TDR-based software-modeling tools become
a powerful system for interconnect-impedance measurements,
signal-integrity Spice and IBIS modeling, and prelayout and
field-solver model validation. System
Integrity with TDR measurements.
Rating - Maximum temperature at which a material
may be used in continuous operation safely.
- Measurement of the degree of hardness or strength
of a metal.

Block - An assembly of terminals in a housing or
body of insulating material to facilitate interconnection
between multiple conductors. Also called terminal strip or
barrier blocks if the terminals are separated by an insulation

- Ethernet Throughput is a measurement similar to
utilization. Throughput, however, measures the number of packets
sent versus the number of packets received. It is very much
a quality of service metric. If 100 packets are sent and 90
of them arrive at the far end, then the throughput of the
system is 90%.
568-A and T568-B - The pins on the RJ45 plug are
numbered 1 to 8. If you are holding a CAT 5 patch cable in
your hand, as if inserting into a jack, with the contacts
facing in the up position, pin 1 will be on the far left.
Pin 8 will be the pin on the far right. This is the orientation
used when defining the wiring assignments in the RJ45
- The technical requirements outlined in ANSI/TIA-1096-A
specify physical dimensions, mechanical
characteristics, and contact requirements for:
1. Carrier-installed jacks used at the demarcation point in
accordance with 47 CFR 68.105(a);
2. Plugs and jacks used with inside wiring in accordance with
47 CFR 68.213(b); and
3. Plugs and jacks used to connect terminal equipment to wireline

Buffer - Material used to secure a fiber in place
within a fiber optic cable.
- Process used to coat iron or steel terminals with
tin to improve soldering and protect against rust.
Plating for Lead-Free Products - Using Tin-Based
plating is a customers requirement for improving their assembly
of our products to their PCB. Xmultipleˇ¦s use of tin alloys
on the solderable termination is based on the materialˇ¦s
excellent properties of solderability and resistance to corrosion.
Whiskers - Tin deposits which form on a printed circuit
board. Tin whiskers can occur when ˇ§pureˇ¨ tin plating is used
on connectors. This ia rare for this condition to occur. Tin
Whiskers Application Note.
Internal Reflection - Light rays reflected at the
core-clad boundary of an optical fiber, allowing transmission
along the length of the fiber.
- Combination device that acts as both a transmitter
and a receiver.
- Transformers are a passive device which transforms
alternative (AC) electrical energy from one circuit into
another through electonmagnetic induciton. In general, transformers
transfer all energy instantaneously form one winding to another
while storing no or little energy in the process.
- Transfer of electric energy by use of conductors, radiation
or induction fields.Transformer and inductors are important
parts of any power supply circuit design.
- Cable with 3 concentric conductors.
- Extruded non-supported material.A device that contains more
than one locator that can be indexed by rotating a circular
barrel, and when attached to a crimping tool, positions the
Head - A device that contains more than one locator
that can be indexed by rotating a circular barrel. Once attached
to a crimping tool it positions the contact.
Cable - Twinaxial cabling, or "Twinax",
is a type of cable similar to coaxial cable, but with two
inner conductors instead of one. Due to cost efficiency it
is becoming common in modern (2013) very-short-range high-speed
differential signaling applications.
Pair - Pair of wires twisted together, most often
used for low-speed communication wire cables.

Serial Bus ˇV Was designed to standardize hardware interface
connection computer peripherals such as the MP3 player, iPod,
iPhone, iPad, keyboard, mouse, joystick, scanner, printer,
telephony devices and any device with a USB port or connector.
There 3 USB standards, USB 1.1, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0. USB 1.1
can transfer data speed up to 1.5 Mbit/s (low-bandwidth) and
12 Mbit/s (full-bandwidth), USB 2.0 also called Hi-Speed can
transfer rate up to 480 Mbit/s (60MB/s) and USB 3.0 has a
blazing transmission speed up to 5 Gbit/s which is 10 times
faster USB 2.0.
Type-C Connectors - USB
Type-C Overview. The Type-C is the next generation of
USB connectors and cables which will be easier to use and
able to push more data faster. USB connectors have become
the connector of choice for some manufacturers of smartphones,
tablets and other mobile devices.
Power Delivery - USB
has expanded from a data interface capable of supplying
limited power to a primary provider of power with a data interface.
