Liam, he's looking for SMD, which need a Bus and Radial.  One Bus can 
daisy chain from drive to drive, and us usually 60 pin.  The radial RF 
cables are usually 26 pin ribbon.  A separate cable from the controller 
to each drive is required to hook up the system.

You're thinking about the 50 pin D-sub that went to the older deskside 
bricks for workstations.
