    I made lots of ribbon cables when I worked in the computer industry. Always IDC and always dual row. There are tools available to make them. The press that pushes the cable onto connector and different sized jigs to hold connectors. Also a test rig available.

    Not sure if the pins match up, but because they're not keyed, you may be able dual row cable even though the male ends are single row.
