I just received my first AVRISP mkII and discovered it only comes with a 6-pin female connector on the DUT end (as I recall, the original version let you use a 6-pin or 10-pin). I use RJ-12 connectors on my boards for programming and built an adapter that converts the old 10-pin connector to RJ-12 (see attachment), so I need to make something similar for the new 6-pin connector. The problem is I can't find any 2x3 connectors (at least at Digikey or Mouser), male or female. Can someone point me to a supplier for a 6-pin IDC shrouded pin connector?

Thanks.

If you can't find a 6 pin connector similar to the one in your picture, you could just remove 2 pins from each end of the 10 pin connectors you have and use them as 6 pin.

Digikey: A33036-ND, 609-2423-ND?

There are others.

Try this link, and then drill down.

Thanks, guys! Don't know how I missed those. As for cutting off pins from a larger one, it's awfully hard to get any sort of tool down in there between the pin and the shroud.

pull the pins out, don't cut... simply heat them with a soldering iron, and yank, from the other side, with some pliers after a few seconds.
