This thread could get very long if people don't read what I wrote
before posting. :)

True.

Thanks for the suggestions, but those aren't it at all, the male
connectors are PCB mounted in that PDF.

Are, sorry, MALE connectors. I've never seen those, and I'm wililng
to bet you won't find such a thing unless you're willing to order many
hundreds if not some thousands. Even the male IDCs for the 50
mil-spaced ribbon cables aren't the most common thing in the world,
nor are they at all cheap.

Any particular reason you need males?




I found some 40-wire male IDE connectors for $5 each on eBay. Not too
shabby, considering the use I'd get, but not ideal. Fiddly, connecting each
wire pair twisted through 180 and lining them all up for the second
connector to form an adapter. I want to connect a cheap CF to IDE adapter.
The only kind I could find small enough to fit in the confined flat space I
have in a 1U racked ITX machine, are those that are intended to plug right
into the mainboard. They were very cheap, work well, and their contacts are
on-plane with the board instead of sticking up in a bulky form. I might
just do away with the insistence on 80-wire lines though, as the card can't
do more than UDM mode 2, and the hard drive on the same buss is for bulk
storage, not speed, but eben so, it would be good to know if these 80-wire
connectors come in both forms, male as well as female.

Please can anyone point me toward a source of crimp connectors for
IDE, male IDC type for 80 wires cables?

I take it you mean you want an 80 pin connector for the 80 wire cables
*that are used with contemporary IDE hard drives*?

In that case, you're after something like:
http://www.mouser.com/catalog/626/1057.pdf . I've used these before,
and due to the higher density you have to be a little more careful
putting them together, but in general they work fine. They certainly
aren't cheap though!

For regular 0.1" x 0.1" spaced IDCs, I've never seen one above 60
pins, and those were rather annoying to terminate properly (it's >3"
long, so applying consistent pressure across the entire body requires
decent jigs).

are female, I need male crimp connectors for the cables if I can get some,
those would be the easiest solution for me. I can make an adapter with the
40-wire equivalents and a very short bit of 40-wire cable, but it's an ugly
solution.

Please can anyone point me toward a source of crimp connectors for IDE,
male IDC type for 80 wires cables? I've only found some for 40-wire cables,
and even those are rare. All standard parts are female, if attached to
cables, but I want to adapt something in a very confined space...
