MIL A-A-55141 GPIB Connector
IEEE-488 IDC Termination Style

Mil specification A-A-55141 defines an IEEE-488 connector which terminates to a cable via an IDC [Insulation Displacement Connector]. The GPIB side is secured by Panel Mount.

The IDC portion of the connector accepts a ribbon cable, however normally in military documents the government calls ribbon cables, flat cables.

Main description of the General Purpose Interface Bus, Additional IEEE488 CIDs
General requirements for a polarized shell, receptacle, electrical digital interface bus connector. This connector can be used in applications that require conformance to the IEEE 488 interface standard, and require termination of a 1.27 mm (.050 inch) flat cable. Connectors are intended for commercial/industrial applications and may be used in military systems where individual environmental and performance requirements can be met.

A Commercial Item Description or CID is a government document used by the military and other government agencies to specify a part or device for use in government contracts. The CID normally just calls a commercial part, but the document is used to provide details, specification and details about the correct part number. Not all part numbers might be approved for government or military use so only part numbers that are provided within the CID are usable or approved.
