All of the HDMI, USB and AV cables are available from RS in a range of colours and different lengths. In addition, the range includes a series of serial and parallel cables for legacy applications with various connections offered, including: DB25 and DB9 types, along with 36 Centronics connectors with both standard and micro variants available.
