Atmos keyboard cable

If you want to ask questions about how the machine works, peculiar details, the differences between models, here it is !
How to program the oric hardware (VIA, FDC, ...) is also welcome.

Atmos keyboard cable

Post by Steve M » Thu Jun 18, 2015 12:29 pm

I have a nice keyboard but the cable came away where it was soldered. I want to replace the cable but all the stuff I can find has the wires together not spaced out as in the Oric.

Is there a kind of cable I can buy like the one used for the Atmos keyboard or would I have to buy some with twice as many wires and cut ever other one to get the spacing ?

You can feed google with "ribbon cable 2.54 mm" to see samples.
Here are results from DigiKey (limited to 14-wire cables).
But IMO, it wouldn't be ugly if you use normal 1.27 mm flat cable and cut every other wire.

Ah, thanks. Molex stuff looks the same as Oric.
