    This is a female, D-shaped, 40-pin IDC, "flat-cable" connector. It's a bit of
    an oddity because the pins in the male connector are not square or round
    pins, but flat blades. Center-to-center spacing is the common flat-cable
    spacing: 0.10 inch (2.5 mm):



    Who makes or carries these? I've searched the usual haunts (DigiKey, Mouser,

    Maybe it's just the search terms I'm using. What terms would you use?

    Urgency necessitates finding these by Monday or Tuesday. Any help is greatly

    Thanks, and
    Happy Holidays,

    Hi, Dave.
    I have seen, but not built with the connector you need. When we can't
    find a connector source, we usually call on TTI, Inc. and find it or an
    equivalent there. They have offices in most major cities, I believe. At
    least they are in Portland Oregon.

    That IS an oddball. I'd send the photos to Digi-key or Mouser and see
    what their customer service departments come up with. I've found them
    very helpful I'd also add a shot of the connecter it mates with. Take
    some measurements too.

    Lastly, what equipment did it come out of?

    Best regards and happy holidays,
