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.

With all the device integration going on, and the explosion of SoCs and chipscale devices, it is important to remember there are still a lot of products with multiple boards and subsystems. Just as important as the components on the boards themselves, the quality and reliability of those critical inter-board connections are vital to a successful product.

Modern methods for creating electronics have made testing more and more difficult. Increasingly complicated systems are also becoming smaller and smaller, making even the most basic parts of designing more challenging. The biggest issue in testing is that one must always have state-of-the-art gear, as it must be better than (or at least equal to) the system under test.
