Those were great!  I'm not entirely sure who made them, but it might have
been Robinson Nugent (since devoured by 3M). It doesn't appear that anyone
makes them any more. The last I saw any was in Anchor Electronics in Santa
Clara CA about 20 years ago.

Sullins does still make male card-edge connectors, but not in an IDC form
for crimping onto ribbon cable. Digi-Key carries them but appears to be
going non-stock.|col05:11947&toggle=in
