From this Article:
The common standard for the diameter (gauge) of round drawn wire is the American Wire Gauge (AWG). As strands of wire are made, they are drawn through progressively smaller dies. This is true of all...

From this Article:
Like modern avionic instruments which are more sophisticated and sensitive (and capable) than in the past, modern coaxes with softer, lower-loss dielectrics are more easily damaged. Bending,...

From this Article:
In theory, electrical signals move at the speed of light. Cables only slow them down. The ratio of actual speed to the speed of light is known as the velocity factor, or Velocity of Propagation (VOP),...

From this Article:
Regardless of its construction, a shield will be only as immune to induced noise as its effectiveness provides. This means that the shield will "intercept" and/or deflect magnetic or electrical fields...
(Wire and Cable)
From this Article:
Low-level circuits are often interconnected using shielded cables, mainly for protection against externally induced noise. Aside from the effectiveness of the shield designs themselves, even more...

From this Article:
There are many ways to terminate a wire: soldering; crimping; under the head of a terminal strip screw; welding...all can be successful in forming a good, gas-tight connection. While each has its...
(Connectors)
From this Article:
Moisture trapped inside a connector can produce effects ranging from unnoticed to serious, depending on the demands of the system. But be assured the cable assembly will be affected if moisture...
