Preformed circuit board jumpers can simplify and streamline design and manufacture, especially when it comes to large-scale board manufacturing. Preformed jumpers eliminate wasted time crafting bits of wire to make your own jumpers, while also offering uniformity and still providing a variety of sizes and shapes, with no potential for bad cuts or ragged insulation ends to increase the risk of failure.
