Re: Through the mount USB3.0 on Mach2 trouble unrelated to temp
Adding to the confusion, not all cables are the same although they might be outwardly identical.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
A notable example are the more consumer-oriented cables which tend to be thinner, primarily for aesthetic and flexibility reasons, but also for cost. Internally, these cables have smaller separation between pairs and use smaller gauge conductors in their construction. This invites issues such as alien crosstalk or even impedance mismatches as the signal travels across different conductor types, gauges, and through connectors that have different qualities.
The golden rule with any data-carrying cable is use only as much as you need and to minimize excess length. Avoiding potential sources of interference is also recommended, such as runs close to and certainly parallel with AC power wiring and nearby 2.4GHz and other ISM band equipment.
Good reading on that latter subject is here:
Cable quality is important so always choose well-designed and well-constructed cables where it matters and where data rates will truly be at high rates.
