Ribbon cables are usually used as interconnects for internal peripherals in computers, such as hard drives, CD drives, and floppy drives. On some older computer systems, they were also used for external connections. Unfortunately, the ribbon-like shape interferes with computer cooling by disrupting airflow within the computer case which has limited the use of ribbon cables in computer designs recently. Round cables have almost entirely replaced ribbon cables for external connections and are increasingly being used internally as well.
When first launched, ribbon cables were utilized in the mainframe computer industry, on card readers, card punching machines, and tape machines. As ribbon cables became more widely used, manufacturing methods and materials were developed to simplify and reduce the cost of ribbon cables. This standardization in the design and spacing of the wires allowed this family of cables to be easily terminated through the use of Insulation Displacement Connectors, or IDC connectors. Because of the simplicity of ribbon cables, their low profile, and low cost due to standardization, ribbon cables are used today in most computers, printers, and many electronic devices.

Both cable types are important in diverse ways. While one assist in a particular field, the other remains relevant in a field that suits it. Though the flat cables were in existence long before the ribbon cables came into existence.
Ribbon cables are however efficient in various areas like computing, aerospace, military and robotics. These cables possess good superior quality, flexibility, packaging efficiency and reduce the presence of electronic noise. In spite of these numerous advantages, the ribbon cables handle termination techniques rather poorly.
More so, there are also worrisome cases of frictional heat in the cable during its repetitive motion cycles — also, conductors inside the cable move relative to one another.
Whereas, the flexible flat cables don’t move within the jacket so that it retains its electrical properties and qualities. Another interesting feature of the flexible flat cable is that the conductors of the cable have similar physical and electrical length.
Inflexible flat cables, the conductors are isolated to keep them stable. These cables are more flexible than ribbon cables.
FFC performs better than ribbon cables in terms of factors such as heat, weight, volume efficiencies and signal considerations.
Therefore, it is necessary to understand the capabilities of both the ribbon cable and flexible flat cables to ensure proper usage. In all, the flexible flat cables possess better features than ribbon cables.
As the size increases in the gauge number, the size of the conductor wire decreases. The metric wire increases with size whereas the AWG size gets smaller with larger size.
