Folks,
I have an RS232 problem between my EFIS and my nav/comm radios and I am looking for a DB15 breakout box / tester box. Something like this https://www.viewpointusa.com/product/breakout-boards/15-pin-breakout-interface/ but for a few dollars, not $95 


There are cheap versions for DB25 but I'm having trouble finding a DB15 flavor. Any ideas?

Art:
Don't go crazy with a One Time Use breakout box (B.O.B.).  
Get a breadboard and build your own B.O.B..
You should be able to find all the parts for $35.
And...   Once you are done with that project you will have the ability to build more and different projects.
Good breadboards have a Power Strip so hookups are even easier.

Try searching eBay for "DB15 Y".

Art,
I couldn’t find a U.S. seller so you may have to wait a few weeks for delivery, but I think this is what you’re looking for:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/371146139444
A terminal block isn’t the best connector for a logic probe, but short lengths of wire should make a workable interface.

I've built several over the years. Here's
one cheap-n-dirty approach

https://goo.gl/GBSRVo

If you're in a big hurry and have access
to solder cup connectors, you can hard-wire
one in about 20 minutes with a bit of 22aWG
wire and a soldering iron.

Let me dig around in the junk box . . . I may
have one already built up . . . which you
can have it it exists.

Just out of curiosity, Art, what kind of problem are you having with the RS-232 link between the EFIS and radios? Is it a consistent failure or a glitch. If it's a glitch, can you tie it to an action or is it a random anomaly? What is the frequency of occurrence?

Couldn't put my hands on it. Here's
the parts in state-side stock.

I can send you a chunk of .05" pitch ribbon
cable if you don't have any.

Thanks for checking, Bob. DB25 breakouts are like $4-6 and readily available. I was hoping to find a DB15 and save myself some time. I guess I'll have to make one Smile
Cheers,

Art,

I had a similar issue a little while back (mine was a DB-9). What I ended up doing is making a pair of DB-25 to DB-9 patch. Fortunately, I had the parts so it just took a little time and was all set.
