Cicoil’s Flexible IDC Ribbon Cables have been designed for use on High-Precision Microelectronic Equipment Systems that require absolute reliability and zero failure. Unlike industry standard stiff ribbon cables that shed particulates and can only operate in moderate temperatures (-20°C to +80°C), the Cicoil version has been designed for tight routing, excessive temperatures (-65°C to +260°C) and Class 1 Clean Rooms.

Cicoil initially developed the IDC Ribbon Cable in 1956 for early mainframe computers, which allowed companies like IBM, Sperry and UNIVAC to replace bulky, stiff round cables with sleek, flexible ribbon cables. In addition, Cicoil's ribbon cables helped America put a man on the moon, as the lightweight cables were integral to the first space walk in 1965, and the Lunar landing in 1969.
