The SPARC board is by Themis, and they used that connector on other
SPARC VME boards, so hunting for the Themis cable should be a lot
easier than hunting for one specifically out of a Cray. 

I'm looking at a Themis "SPARC 2SE" right now, and it has the same
serial a/b port. (I don't have the cable for it.)
