This is a three part paper. The first part traces the growth of wiring from early days, through current and possible future trends.
The second part traces ignition cable design from the past up to date. Some of the problems encountered in today's ignition cable are pointed out and solutions are offered. A new magnetic core, suppressor type, ignition cable using a metal conductor is described.
The third part touches upon several new materials which may find application in wiring of the future.
