Poll: What Do Electronic Engineers Want to Know about Cabling, Wiring & Connectors

I know its hard to gain the attention of electronic engineers who get goose bumps over hearing about the fastest processor ever on the Raspberry Pi4 or the latest high-performance dual core superscalar processor running at 1.6 Ghz, and then abruptly change the conversation to talk about wiring, cabling and connectors.

 

But all electronics systems need to one degree or another some kind of wiring, cabling (for connecting sub-assemblies or system wide components), and connectors (interconnects and terminations).

 

If I have your attention, I'd like to bring you into the conversation now and ask you (as if we were sitting at a bar I frequent near my apartment in Chicago called The Globe Pub), "what do you want to know about cabling wiring and connectors." (Go ahead, take a sip from your glass of Guinness® before you answer).

 

To help you ponder your answer, check out my poll below. Or, leave a comment and tell me what what you would like to know about cabling, wiring and connectors, or, even better, share a story about the time that you wished you had known more about wiring, cabling and connectors and didn't and what happened.
