The flying wire connector (or header) can be purchased separately from the Xilinx Online Store.
The header to be used with this connector cable consists of .025" square gold-plated pins placed on .10" x .10" centers (i.e., the pins are 1/10" apart in both rows and columns).
Samtec is an available source for the square posts and header connectors:
