ribbon cable

Any cable constructed as a ribbon with parallel elements. 2. A fiber optic cable in which the optical fibers are held in grooves and laminated within a flat semirigid strip of material, such as plastic, that positions, holds, and protects them. Note: Ribbon cables may be stacked to produce fiber optic cables with large numbers of fibers. Buffers, strength members, fillers, and jacketing are usually added to produce the final cable. [After 2196]
