Looks like some sort of Ribbon cable. I counted 25 individual strands. Also the pin pitch is important, that means distance between the pins of the cable. I would use just any old flat cable with same pin pitch.
If I'd have to guess I would take old IDE hard drive cable and fabricate one. If the pitch needs to be higher wires can be separated to achieve correctness.

thank you for reply.

i just want name of this wire cable. this is not ribbon cable.

you can see this type of cable in automotive grade pcb where this is used for connect two PCB.

please give type of this wire pitch and size does not matter.

It's a flat flex cable.  There are a variety of terminations available.

this is pcb solder cable. this cable doesn't have any solder pad like FFC have.

Looks like something akin to a Tyco Flexstrip jumper -- a sore point with me at the moment, because I typoed a part number last week and ordered one with the wrong pin pitch!

See http://www.te.com/catalog/minf/en/161?BML=10576,17787 for the Tyco version, but no doubt other manufacturers have similar.  I seem to be struggling to get their product selector to find the part I'm looking for as an example, but there's a reference guide at that URL which describes the options.

The important variables are the length, pin pitch and conductor count, so try a part number like FSN-12A-25 (FS=Flexstrip, N=Nomex insulation, 1=1.27mm pitch, 2=2 inches long, A=straight pins, 25=25 conductors) as a starting point and adjust from there if required.
