    Currently need a source for header sockets in 2mm pitch, ideally 2row*10 but I'm
    prepared to improvise.

    Far(ke)nell have the Harwin 2*10 for ~$24 each!! Looking for a more sane price
    than that. Small quantity. Any ideas?

    Depending on how small a quantity it may be worthwhile asking Prospec
    9249 9277.
    They can supply Samtec parts.

    Tnx for the lead Alan.

    Their website lists three suppliers for the required connector - GTK, Samtec and
    Oupiin. Unfortunately they can only offer me an SMD type by another supplier
    entirely - $1 ea, MOQ 58, 2-3weeks - which is pretty good. As I was chasing
    through-hole (which I stated in my enquiry) this doesn't help, so the hunt goes
    on.

    I hope you have a better experience than me. I sent email enquiries to Samtec a
    couple of years back and never even got a response.

    You might try also JRL Components in Malaga 9248 3744.

    I haven't dealt with them for years but they used to specialise in
    connectors - nowadays I don't know - I try and stick with common or
    garden parts as much as possible! (like the MT8870 DTMF controllers -
    MOQ 820 - painful !)

    Last time I dealt with them, John was in Beaufort St.

    Just checked - MOQ hell yet again. "especially with AMP" she said.

    Tnx anyway

    Apart from Far(ke)nell they listed C&S and Metromatics. Already tried both,
    MOQ/MOV hell all over again.

    It's the old problem - no-one wants to hold stock to break down the factory MOQ,
    because they get stuck with a shelf full of non-moving lines. Arrow with Maxim
    are a perfect (?) example.

    Sounds like Farnell win again. Methinks the protos may be assembled here but
    even trial prod will be offshore, where the chinese will source them in whatever
    small quantities are required. (The last job here cost us $140 per stuffed
    board, now we get them ex china for $24.)

    Guess I'll just stck with the 0.1in variety. At least you can get
    them almost anywhere!

    I did notice a trend for some micro manufacturers to go with 6 pin (2
    x 3) ribbon cable sockets for in circuit programming devices. I
    haven't seen anywhere locally where you can get the 6 pin sockets yet
    though.

    I suppose you might try looking oversees for the connectors - Digikey,
    Mouser, etc or even someplace in the UK.
