We don’t really know what to call this thing – it’s got a 10 pin IDC cable on one end 6 inches of rainbow ribbon and tipped with 0.1″ female socket connectors on the ends. We think this would be handy as a 10-pin JTAG breakout adapter, or maybe some sort of cable re-arranger. Anyhow, it seems useful and we picked up a bunch.
Yeah we know it would be awesome if we could get a 6-pin version but the gray socket connector thing doesn’t come in anything smaller than 10 pins – we asked!
