The confusing computer cable

When it comes to your computer, a novice can get quite fuzzled by the number of cables and types of cables that are needed to connect the various components of the computer. The computer cable sadly is not just one single cable but several varieties with varying purposes for each cable. Each type of computer cable fits into a special port designed for that cable. There are many types of computer cables and here are some of the most common types explained.

Patch Cables

Patch Cables also known as the Patch Cords are cables which connect two optical devices. The patch cable is optical or an electric cable which is used for the above purpose. It is usually in a different color than the other cables. This helps in differentiating the Patch cable from the rest of the other wires. These wires can be as short as 3 inches to patch an optical device. Short patch cables are also called pigtails; these are used to connect small devices like the phone to modem or something like that.

Dream gaming laptop build

Up until a couple of years ago I would never recommend gaming on a laptop. The costs of a top of the line laptop was very high and even then, the performance was no where near a gaming PC. But times have changed, the hardware engineers have managed to miniaturize the latest technologies and costs have plummeted. So if I where to put together my dream gaming laptop what would I put in it?

Limitations of Thermal Profiling

Like all the technical process wave soldering process too has some misconceptions associated with it. These misconceptions lead to the poor performance of the process and keep some facts covered regarding the process. These covered facts affect the performance of the process and the quality of the final output of the process to a great extent. It is recommended that the people associated with this process keep themselves aware of all the facts associated with it. This awareness will lead them to higher profits in terms of quality of the product manufactured and the cost required for the production.

Product Features for Daily Thermal Profiling

The thought of executing the thermal profiling for the reflow wave soldering process is extensively established all through the printed circuit board assembling industry. Thermal profiling is executed on a board-by-board basis throughout the prototyping or during the starting of the assembly set up. The required thermal profiling then must be safeguarded and all its parameters must be maintained during the running of the boards.

Wave Solder Process Control

Wave solder process is the most important factor in determining the quality of the printed circuit boards manufactured. It decides the quality and the performance of the printed circuit boards manufactured. It is a quite necessary process for the manufacturers in this business. All the printed circuit board manufacturers keep a sharp watch on every single process taking place in the printed circuit board manufacturing through the wave soldering process. The monitoring or we can say that the optimization process for printed circuit board manufacturing plays a key role. The controlling of the wave soldering process is also a very important factor in the printed circuit board manufacturing.
