    Does anyone know where I can get a few 10-pin female flat ribbon cables. They look like this:

    The header looks like this:

    I have a couple of those that i used on my CSE210 class. I got them from the CSE department, i don't think i was supposed to keep them, but whatever. Do you have access to a Computer Engineering department? They might be able to get you a couple.

    I could probably ask, but since it's winter break most people are out so it might be a little difficult.

    There must be an online store that sells yours though.

    There's a couple of pretty old ones sitting around at work, but i can't take them. :tongue2:
    I think they sell the ribbon cable and the connectors separately. So you want a 10 wire ribbon cable and a female 10 slot DIP connector or something like that. I think your best bet is a local hardware/electronics store.

    I tried google but couldn't find anything to my satisfaction. It would be nice to have it pre-assembled, but I guess i'm going to have to get the ribbon and header seperately and then built it myself.
