Programmable Wire Attachment Scheme for Stamped Discrete Pin Connectors

      Disclosed is a cable to connect an attachment scheme which is
programmable and allows muliple wires to be attached to a single pin
in the connector.

      Traditionally, we use progress dies to stamp out rows of
contacts.  Each discrete contact commons its neighbor until an
overmolded plastic organizer can be attached.  At this point, the
contacts are severed from each other.  By modifying this procedure to
include a second commoning strip, we can individually cut away
sections, as shown in Fig. 1, to allow programmablity, commoning and
attachment of multiple wires to a single pin.  For cable attachment,
see Fig. 2.
