Where can i buy the 40x1 pinhead connector separate? I am also looking for a plug type connector for the duemilanove board digital and analog connections.

I am unsure what you mean by 40x1 pinhead connector separate.

If you mean male headers, most of the electronics stores and ebay sell these in groups of 16-40 pins, that you can break off as many as you need for a particular project.  These are made so you can solder in the small end to a PCB board, and use the long end to attach to the female header pins on most Arduino boards and shields.  Here is the Adafruit version of the headers: http://www.adafruit.com/products/392.

I tend to like the Adafruit longer version of the male header, that you can put the header into a standard breadboard, and have enough room that you can attach a female jumper pin: http://www.adafruit.com/products/400.  These are harder to find than the standard pins above.

You can also get the female version made for soldering to pcb boards to allow male pins to be attached: http://www.adafruit.com/products/598

If you are building a shield to mount on your Arduino, you can use female stacking pins, such as: http://www.adafruit.com/products/85.

An alternative to the female mounting pins are female machine round headers, that tend to hold solid wires a little bit better (but probably not stranded wires unless you tin them): http://www.dipmicro.com/store/HDR40X1FM.

There is a male version of the machine rounded pins as well: http://www.dipmicro.com/store/HDR40X1MM

If you are wanting to make cables of custom lengths, you might go to the crimp connectors from pololu: http://www.pololu.com/catalog/category/19.

If you are wanting to have removable connectors that are soldered to perfstrips, and you want to make custom wires, you might consider these wafer kits from dipmicro: http://www.dipmicro.com/store/SET-HDR

Often times, these parts by themselves aren't that expensive, but you pay a lot more for shipping.  So, I tend to group them in with other orders to cut down on the cost.


That is exactly what I was looking for.

Thanks for the help.
