Pycom 2.54mm short headers link to buy some
I designed a board for a customer using a Lopy and after soldering my 2.54 female headers I realized Pycom use short ones that is a far better option for me, height is lower.
But I can'r find them, do you know where I can source them, male and female ones (SMD and PTH)?
Any full reference or link where to buy them will be appreciated Thanks for your help.
@river Thanks I didn't even thought about IC pin headers, good idea, will try them for sure.
You're welcome for the board, looks like IoT world is still small ;-)
@charly86 Here is the reference, cost me about 2 hours finding the correct header when buyed and also two failed attempts buying incorrect ones. They are expensive, so buyed 32 pins ones and can be cut to size without sacrifying pins.
Mouser Ref: 437-8018703210012101
As you can see, it's perfect match, BTW the female header it's intended for rounded pins but I feel the module sits more secure with this.
The feel plugging the module on the header it's not bad, not much more force than with Expansionboard.
Thanks for your excellent boards (I haven't bought any yet) but I follow you on another forums and saw your work
@river mouser link would be awesome, thanks for your help
makes sense, thanks for that precision
Hello @Charly86 tomorrow I can show you mine headers, bought from mouser. I think they are the same height as pycom ones
anyone in hardware team can just tell us where do they source the connectors
We provide the specs for the headers to our manufactures who then source them via their own channels.
@jmarcelino I've built 10 boards with this reference, unfortunately this is not a good one, it works but:
- It's really expensive
- it's mainly for rounded male pins, so you need to force much more to insert/remove PyCom devices
- and last but not least, it's not the correct height size so when plugged here what it looks like
So I'm trying to ask back, anyone in hardware team can just tell us where do they source the connectors and give us official reference or at least put them in the shop?
I have female rounded (machine) pin headers like the ones you posted but Pycom boards (with the default soldered headers) don't fit on them
3Pcs 40Pin 2.54mm Single Row Round Female Pin Header Socket gold plated
10Pcs 40Pin 2.54mm Single Row Round Female Pin Header Socket gold plated
10X Gold Plated 2.54mm 40 Pin Single Row Straight Round Pin Header Strip
5Pcs Gold Plated 2.54mm Male 40 Pin Single Row Straight Round Pin Header Strip
That's expensive, may be buy the 30 pin and split in 2x14 pins is cheaper but it's nice to know we have a reference ;-)
The team suggested this one for female side
Thanks, I searched header and not connector, missed that post.
But with ref BG095, found this one (but 10 pin max) so using 2x7 pins should do the trick
And also ordered this one on ebay
but I'm unable to find the male ones
I’m trying to find out, but in the meantime this seems to be the best answer https://forum.pycom.io/topic/1726/lopy-pcb-female-connector/4
