This term seems impossible to Google, since it normally refers to
Surface Mount Devices now, but by going via the Wikipedia article on
SCSI connectors, I think you both mean:

I have quite a wide variety of SCSI cables, including 25-pin, 50-pin,
68-pin and more, and covering most of the connectors, both to and
from. What I don't have any more are hardly any SCSI-equipped
computers, so I guess that the cables can go.
