D Sub Monitor Cables With a Female to Female Design for VGA and SVGA Hardware

D sub female to female cables are a very common CPU electronic connector option. These accessories have a D-shaped design that's molded out of a thin metal shield. When compared to other connector solutions, D sub products are one of the smallest options available for computer hardware.

What are the female to female cable adapter usage options?

Both short and long D sub female to female VGA cables can be used with a variety of different monitor products. When a proper adapter cord is connected to a compatible screen, it will transmit a VGA or super VGA signal. The compatible monitor options include:

  • Flat-screen computer monitors: By using a VGA/SVGA adapter cord with a flat-screen monitor, you will experience crisp resolution effects while the cord displays bright colors on the thin screen. Flat-screen units transmit images and video in a vibrant way because the technology that produces the colors relies on vibrant lighting components. These cables help flat-screen monitors generate multiple colors and effects, and the wiring is compatible with flat panels that have a static or volatile design.
  • CRT: When a D sub cord is attached to a CRT, it projects colors through the cathode ray tube. As a CRT monitor generates electron beams, a D sub cable transmits a signal onto the screen.
  • Flat-screen televisions: These cords can be used with flat-screen televisions because flat-panel TVs and computer monitors have similar design specs. By attaching a cord to a computer and a television, you can transmit the computer information to the TV display.
What are the VGA cable lengths and split/duplication options?

Average cables that connect computer equipment to close-range monitors and televisions are 1 foot to 4 feet long. Cables designed for computer accessories that are spaced several feet apart are 5 to 9 feet long, and the longest solutions for distant hardware are designed with a 15-foot to 19-foot cable.

Most VGA cables are built with a split/duplication ratio of 1:2, 1:3, or 1:4. Cables that lack split/duplication properties are also options.

What are the design specs for an average VGA cable?

The average VGA cable has multiple pins that mount in the gaps that are found on connector ports. A typical cord has an adapter with either 9 pins or 15 pins. On the adapter housing, there are screw mechanisms that twist in order to lock a cord in place on a monitor housing.
