It's a "6 position 6 conductor" RJ type connector. They are often called
RJ-11 but I think that refers to a depopulated 6 position connector. I
think the correct name is RJ-12, but am not totally sure. In any case, I
often use Jameco 115836.

I made an RJ12 to Dsub 15 coonector so I could use all the promate 2 cables I'd previously made!

AFAIK the RJ (Registered Jack?)numbering refers to a particular *use* of
a modular connector. I doubt Microchip has registered its use, so I
think the correct name would be a 6/6 (6 positions, 6 contacts) modular
