2The 28AWG and 26AWG Madison cables, shown in figure 1, have actually been designed to minimize the skew that can occur between any two pairs in the cable. As a result, the skew of 0.04ns/ft is an order of magnitude better than cables which have not been designed in this way. For a parallel interface such as SCSI or HPPI, the skew is particularly important; for T9000 transputer links, it is no less important.
