    Thanks for the link vikas.
    Well if going the 6 pin connector route, I am assuming there be connectors on both ends.
    i.,e neither the programmer will have wires soldered directly or the target end having loose wires.

    Now, I havent seen ready made cables with connectors on both ends. If you intend to make them yourselves, I guess the cost benefit will be lost ?

    No ready made connector on both sides are available in market. Making own connectors is cheap if you buy material for 500 connectors.

    LOL akshay, did you read the poll question before voting?

    @pkshima, the cost still comes out to be lesser, we have already calculated.

    @akshay, I guess Rao & Vikas will easily and quickly sell over 500 units so numbers wont be a problem here.

    By cost, I meant not money but the headache of crimping those pins. Somehow even with a 750 Rs crimping tool, I find it very cumbersome.
    If its still cheaper for them, I guess they have a better technique of making it or they might be offloading it to some small shop.

    I can't quite follow this thread... What is it about? Is it the technical/quality aspect or the cost aspect that you guys are worried about?

    Anyway, we regularly use them in our products as connectors between PCB to LCD & PCB to keypad and they are pretty sturdy.

    And they are pretty cheap. We buy from Chhabra Electronics, LRM (and I don't have his numbers with me). Last time, IIRC, he quoted Rs. 0.9 per pin/wire for one end male+female connectors and Rs. 1.35 per pin/wire for both ends have male+female connectors. Wire length was 9". For a 6-wire connector with connectors on both ends: Rs. 1.35*6 = Rs. 8.10. I don't know about you guys, but this price suits us great. The wires and connectors are good quality, and I have absolutely no issues against them. They'll custom-build for you also, at no extra price.

    Actually, they are. We've bought them across the counter. It seems the 6-pins are usually stocked in quantities. I think they are used in PCB to LCD connections a lot - weighing scales, PCO machines etc.

    Agree with Mohit,

    making connectors is easy,cheap & they are sturdy too.

    @PKshima: You don't actually need a crimping tool.I use my nose pliers.

    I never suggested making these connectors! Whatever the quantities, you should buy them.

    Ok but still find making connectors better.

    I rarely buy ready mate relimate connectors.There are several advantages of making connectors like:

    cheap.
    You can choose the length of wire.
    With 8 pins in hand you can make four 2pin connectors or two 3pins & one 2pin connector so i mean you can make them up to your requirement.
