Why is the SHB12x-B12X LVDS cable made with the connections reversed on each end of the cable? Pin 1 on end end of the cable maps to pin 73 on the other end of the cable, etc.

Hello sholm,

 

The NI SHB12X-B12X LVDS cable is used to interface with specific devices which use the12X InfiniBand connector. The online product page for this cable recommends using the NI SHB12X-B12X cable to connect the 12X InfiniBand connector on the NI 656x high-speed digital instruments with other NI accessories such as the NI SMA-2164 to break out cable signals for direct access.

Correct communication between the devices mentioned above requires that the connections be reversed.
