Topic: Long female header pins? (Read 3 times) previous topic - next topic


OK i've looked high and low and I want to get female .1" straight header pins with the long leads on the bottom like on the ethernet Arduino shield.  I'm trying to build a shield of my own.  Where do i get them in the US?  I've contacted digikey and newark and neither one seam to know what I'm talking about.


THanks for those links.  I'll see if they are willing to give out there sources.  I need to purchase 100's of them.


[repeating an earlier post]

It's a "Tail option" on Samtec's SSW line of connectors (for example; I imaging other manufacturers do similar things.)


Samtec is a great manufacturer; been in business forever, generous with samples, generally helpful and communicative, and available through digikey.  (I don't know if you can get ALL samtec parts through digikey, though...)


I've just been sent some samples from samtec (very quick!):


They're 6 and 8 - way long-tailed 0.1" pitch sockets.
The 'F' is for "gold flash selective" (gold flash inside the sockets) but with Matte tin on the tails.
I went for the 'low insertion force' (the '23' in the part) and it seems just right.
I'm assuming that matte tin is OK to use as a connecting pin.

Here's a picture:
