    Are you looking for the matching side of the green connector?

    If so you might be able to just get by with any SIL connector that has the same pitch, just measure the distance between pins and find one that matches... Be aware doing this you won't have the polarization ripples so you need to pay attention to how you plug it in... As for locating the real plug, it's just a lot of leg work going over manufactures sites looking for a match, or browsing some online suppliers that have good pictures...

    it would be for the black one.
    i already have the green one, which i would be using for RS232 control.

    The mating half to the black connector is simply a 20 pin IDC socket, sometimes call a 20 pin box header...

    you buy one :), its best to have a crimp tool for it as well tho it can be done in a reasonable way by other methods. Ribbon cable is normally used

    google for sales of 20way IDC connectors

    ( IDC = Insulation Displacement Connector)

    Don't think there are room for normal ribbon cable headers on the shown pcb. They all need extra space on the sides(ends). The picture indicates little room at the ends of the blocks, between the green block and the other.

    TOK ;)
