Can someone help me find the IDC connectors on digikey that are used on ribbon cables for ISP and JTAG programming (2x3 and 2x5). Can't seem to find them.

Nice post John.

Those connectors are awful to find. Sometimes Digi-Key has one - but it goes in and out of stock. It seems like such a straight forward part too.

I've taken the hint and made it sticky - if anyone disagrees then let me know. Perhaps it should become a more general thread title such as "supply of components often used in AVR designs" or something like that with suitable additions then being made?

That's where you use the missing pin technique.

I never had problems when ordering items like this through farnell, I do not know if this s a good alternative in the US (digikey seems to be mostly used there)

John - I just realized you made the same mistake as me a little while back. This part is not compatible with the AVR ISP connector.

However, I believe that another FCI part, 609-2845-ND, is compatible. I haven't used it though - as it tends to be out of stock when I need it!

Not sure how much you order from Farnell(or whatever they are calling them self’s today)and therefore what prices you get, but in general Farnell is around 20% more expensive than Digikey(Mouser is close, but Digikey is still a little cheaper for most of the products). Also, when you order above 60.00 euro, shipping is free.

It’s not that I’m biased, I’ve ordered products from all those companies and others, they all have a good service(let’s say, the only difference when ordering from Farnell, is that the goods are there the next day or the day after, with Digikey it’s one day more (to Belgium)) , it’s just the price, why pay more for the same thing?

Sometimes I ask myself, how do they(Farnell) do it?

Digikey is often more expensive than others in small quantities for discrete parts and standard logic, but they have a good stock of specialty IC's others don't. And they are just convenient to order from TBH, best no-fat catalog IMO.

Here it's usually 3 to 4 times the price of other wholesalers.

Yeah Farnell is expensive, but you get stuff the next day. Both Farnell and Newark merged into Element 14, but even though they fall under the same company the prices are considerably different. Was looking at a programmable gain amplifier PGA116 and there was something like a $3-5 difference per chip (Farnell being the more expensive one).

I still pay for the speed though :).

Yes.

Personally I keep a supply of wide ribbon cable and split off the number of conductors I need.

Pololu has 6-pin shrouded male connectors (http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/854) as well as the mating females (not as dirty as it sounds): (http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/855).

I usually buy the breakable 2x40 headers, and break them to 2x3. It's much cheaper, but not shrouded so you must pay attention.

Things like this are really robbery on digikey - I think better to buy noname stuff from ebay/china, unless it is mission critical.

For example - the cable side connector, one at digikey is 82 cents, or 10 for $7.24.
On ebay 10 is $3.90, shipped. Chinese no-name stuff, but.. sufficient.

Check my post here (near the end) to see how to convert an ISP header for breadboard use in case you need to...

I don't use IDC headers, just built something like this: http://www.electricstuff.co.uk/p... and leave free pads on the boards for production.

Appears similar to a Tag-Connect.
