Where can I buy a female connector for a AWM ribbon flex cable 1.00 mm pitch 16 pin. Its about 17.00 mm wide. I need this for connecting this cable to a patch panel with 2.54 mm spacing.
I believe what you are looking for are called FFC, FPC (Flat Flexible) connectors. It looks like DigiKey has quite a few at 0.039" (1.0mm) pitch and 16 conductor.
If you have a surface mount 1mm plug, this is what you need: http://www.proto-advantage.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=3400022
If you use a through hole 1mm plug, you need something like this (much cheaper and easier): http://www.proto-advantage.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=3800027
Never dealt with this company, so this isn't an endorsement. You may find more by searching for Pitch Changer.
I found something at digikey, since there is no URL for search results these are the steps to reproduce my results:
- Search for "FFC"
- Click "FFC, FPC (flach, flexibel) - Steckverbinder - Kartenmontage (X items)"
- Select then Positionsanzahl: 16
- and Neigung (pitch): 1mm
- and Montagetyp: Durchführungsloch, Durchführungsloch rechtwinklig, Kartenrand Ausschnitt
- and select "Artikel auf Lager"
- then click "Filter anwenden"
- If the product list does not show up select "Seite aufrufen"
- In the column "Einheitspreis" click the ascending icon and enter 10 for "Teilemenge (erforderlich)" since I'm looking for at least 10 connectors, sorted by the cheapest.
Update: Digikey told me that there is flex cable 1mm connector for 2.54 mm bread board. :(
