Is there a way to extend a 60 pin ribbon cable? Or somewhere that sells them? I cant find anything. I need it to be around 18"-20"

Any info is appreciated. Thanks

I do not know.  Depends on what connector, and the specifics of data transmission.

 

What is the application?

 

If you just need 60 conductor ribbon, you can get that by the foot.

SOB, just lost my post on my lappy.  Here I go again.

 

I think I lied to you.  Do you need the thin plastic ZIF ribbon, or the ribbon with plastic connectors on the end like old school IDE cables?

 

Ribbon cables, like the IDE and floppy cables, you can get on spools, cut, and snap on your own connectors. The flat ZIF ribbons, not so much.

 

Digikey has some cables (.5mm pitch ffc ZIF) but nothing over 200mm in stock from what I can tell.  Ebay has some 250mm cables.  You can also run 2X30 conductor, or 3X20 conductor ribbons side by side as well.

 

Sony, king of proprietary.  Wish you luck.
