I don't ask for much.  This (attached image) is a fairly generic IDC connector
AFAIK, but I can't seem to find it at the usual sources (Mouser, Digikey,
etc).  Don't really care for Jameco nowadays (bad experiences), but can't
even find it on their website.  Any ideas where I can get these?  I need a
handful each of 2x5, 2x6, 2x7, 2x8

Send the pic to a tech at digikey. I know they have these, but they aren't
calling them IDC

Will try that.  IIRC on Digikey.com, I search for "header" and one of the
categories that comes up is "Headers and Receptacles".  From there I select
filters for "female", "receptacle", etc.  But no dice today.  I'll call them.

Cheers,

Two weeks ago I was asking around for these as well, because they are
excellent as connectors for hobby projects.

Unfortunately, I only found astronomical priced ones on ebay. Digikey
I don't know about, since they have huge shipping prices to Sweden.

I wish you best of luck in finding them.

This is one of those times an actual printed catalog is nice. something like DigiKey part number 609-1746-ND maybe?

This is a prime example of a case where having the paper catalog is
still a good idea! :)

Digikey carries some Tyco/AMP connectors, they simply call them "socket
connectors", for a 10 pin the number is ASC10H-ND, you can use that to
figure out the necessary search terms for others.

Forgot to mention AMP/Tyco makes these, too. They're on page 24 of the current catalog <http://dkc3.digikey.com/PDF/T071/P0024.pdf> note there are different types of polarization.

I guess the correct term is "socket connector" according to digikey. But amp calls them "ribbon cable connector" see their website here <http://catalog.tycoelectronics.com/TE/bin/TE.Connect?C=1&M=BYPN&PID=402662&PN=1658620-1&I=13> That page also has a link to mating products, which is a nice help to see if a particular model will fit your header.

Advice buy your ribbon cable seperate and make them your self.  I found
very few that were pre assembled in stock.

I think you might have a rad time with the 2x6 or 12 conductor  common
ones are 10, 14, 16, 20, 24 and bigger.

The magic word is "rectangular connectors"

Mouser has a whole section, starting at page 1111 in their newest
catalog.   Download the .pdf, it will become your new best friend.

The typical pitch is 0.1".    There are the type you show, or there are
others which will go to bare wire as well.

like these http://www.voti.nl/shop/p/CON-CC10-10.html ?

I get them from whttp://www.velleman.be, but most large shops have them. But I
did not see 2x6.

Yep, those are correct, and also the ones the others pointed out.  I also
spoke with a Mouser tech (and uploaded the picture to him) last night who
said they are called "IDC sockets", but they don't come up with a search for
"IDC".

Yep, paper catalogs were great for this, but I had them all stopped some time
ago when I moved to Florida.  I get too much paper every month so really
trying to keep it cleaner.  What I really need is a faster internet
connection so I can browse the PDF catalog less painfully :-)

Thanks,
-Neil.

Why don't you just download the entire Mouser and/or Digikey catalog pdf
file?

That's what I do and have a shortcut on my desktop to each one. It's fast
to search since it's a local copy plus you get the entire contents of the
printed catalog that's page-by-page browseable like the printed version.

Cause I'm not that smart :-)  Seriously though, I was not aware that the whole
catalog was downloadable (and never checked) ... thought it was page by page.  
Mouser once sent me a CD copy of their catalog (without asking) but I quickly
learned that it was out of date.  I'll do this tonight.

Only thing now is figuring out how to get a copy of McMaster's catalog, which
they will not send me a hardcopy of and which they said was not downloadable.

Cheers,
-Neil.

unless someone has suggested it....  SAMTEC.   I get samples within a few days from my rep, and production qty is normally not an issue.  Arrow and Avnet both carry, if your friendly with your local distributors (shouldnt we all be?)
