Ribbon Cable Connector
I'm having trouble finding the ribbon cable connector I'm looking for. It's a board mount ribbon cable connector either thru-hole or SMT which is basically the connector I'm showing in the picture I have attached. Essentially you have a bare ribbon cable where you insert it into the connector and then there are clips on each side which secure the ribbon cable and "clamp" it into the conn.
Does anyone know what style conn this is? Or do they have any info. for me?
They are called FPC (Flexible Printed Circuit) connectors, Newark do a good range in the USA.

Looking into these I can't find a connector which will be able to terminate to the flat ribbon cable and then be able to plug into a board mount connector. Looks like I need to call some vendors. Anyone even do what I"m trying to do here?
You want the flexible ribbon to plug into a connector which then as to plug into a printed circuit board mounted connector? Do I understand you correctly?
Digikey has them. You will absolutely need the pitch (e.g. 0.5mm, 1mm, etc) and the number of conductors.
The other pice of info you will need is what side the contacts are on. (e.g. top or bottom). I can see that yours is right angle SMT.
Here is a ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) version: http://www.electro-tech-online.com/c.../e58606137.pdf
