The micro ribbon or miniature ribbon connector is a common type of electrical connector used particularly in computer and telecommunications applications. Popularly referred to as a Centronics connector due to the widely used Centronics parallel interface, it is also known as a Telco, Amphenol, 25-pair, Delta ribbon or CHAMP connector. Although it was invented by Amphenol, many companies now produce it, such as 3M, Cinch Connectors, Tyco Electronics (formerly AMP), and Hirose Electric Group.

sternly allotted sandpile
emit a tiny violet flavoured nuisance: Odor?
comes out like a ribbon lies flat on the brush”
