MIT Cable--- How They Work, What they Do

Posted by NegWAF on March 13, 2007 at 06:38:16:

I am interested in the operating principle if any behind the MIT design ( other than to make a huge profit).I have read the "reflected energy" "signal transfer" , "low pass filter" jargon. Have any engineers ever taken these apart or run a swept tone through the cable to see what it does to a waveform? Not trying to poo poo the cable or empirical results, just wondered why there seems to be so much secrecy behind the technology and lack of info on the technology behind the design.Dont those little boxes pique anyones curiosity? I know as with any product these have their fans and detractors but wanted to hear from the test bench side.
