What are the connectors called that are the thin ribbon things you
commonly see on PCBs. They are very flat and ribbony, and slide into
the connector sort of like a PCI card slides into a PCI slot, only
much thinner and flexible.

I've been trying to find them in the digikey catalog, but am having a
real problem finding them without knowing what they are called. I'm
trying to hook my project into an existing product between two of
these connectors that are 14 pins wide so I'll need a ribon, and a
connector.

Thanks,

Figured it out, they're called either Flex connectors or FPC. Thanks Digikey.
