Belden Calls them all D-Subminiature connectors either Plugs or Sockets
(Jacks) in 9, 15, 25, and 37 pins. Metal Head shells or thermoplastic.
Having .050" centered conductors.

DSP009 is 9 pin plug
DSJ009 is 9 position jack (socket)

Were there Standards, or was this left to Mfg part numbering scheme??
Molex, Amphenol, Thomas & Betts, Ansley? Mil Spec?

How large would the pins be, or how far apart if there WERE a DB9?
Or what about a DB25 serial port cable that only has pins 1-8 and 20?
Could we call THAT a DB9? :-)
