 for ribbon cable
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  ribbon cable
      A type of flat multicore cable with cores
     positioned side-by-side, making it quick and relatively easy
     to clamp an Insulation Displacement Connector (IDC) across
     all cores.
     Ribbon cables typically have grey insulation with cores on a
     0.050" pitch and a red stripe marking Pin 1.  They are less
     resilient than screened, multicore cable and are usually used
     inside equipment where little movement or plugging and
     unplugging are expected.  A common use is connecting a disk
     drive to the motherboard in a PC.
