44pin ATA PCB connector ?

Postby exxos » Tue Sep 30, 2008 10:53 am

Can't seem to find these anywhere ? The types which are right angle PCB mount, 44pin (2.5" IDE) like found on the back of hard drives.. Can't find them in farnell unless they are listed as something else.. Though searching for 44pin only brings up ribbon cable connectors :-(

I ended up buying one from an Ebay seller. It was supposed to be for an Amiga hard drive. Should be able to find him here http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/amigakit_dot_com. They can make them any length you require apparently.

EDIT: after re-reading your post it seems you want the part that gets soldered onto a pcb that has the pins sticking out. Sorry mate, don't know where to get those.

here you go:

this comes from http://www.interfacebus.com/Design_Connector_IDE.html which has links to manufacturers. I remember FOXCONN used to do a lot of them, but can't find anything but SATA.
that's the bits you want but trying to find them without them being stuck onto a converter is bloody hard. Looks like the majority of manufacturers have dumped PATA connectors in favour of SATA ones.
At least you know what you're looking for now.
