Thread: Is DB19 not a manufactured format?

    Actually if not all the pins are used in the 19, perhaps you could adapt to a 15, which still seems to be pretty common.

    The last time I needed one, I would have had to either order 1000 of them, or pay an obscene amount for one. How common is a DB25?

    Less common, it seems, that it used to be.

    I've discarded enough 25-pin male to female cables to displace all the DSDD floppies in that other thread.

    Looking at Digikey and Mouser, the 19 pin D-sub connectors are still made, but you probably won't like the prices for any of the ones with shorter lead time availability. Some are marked as ship from manufacturer stock. So if you find them for less than $50 each (or higher), consider yourself lucky.

    Care to point me at the Mouser or Digikey entries? I found one for Mouser, but it's apparently a typo for a 15 pin one.
