following my post about connectors http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,73169.0.html
in fact it turns out this reference can be found on several providers, BUT it is the male connector only. not the **female** connector. According to manufacturer JSR datasheet, the female connector is BM08B-SURS-TF
and that precise female connector ==> i could not find it anywhere (RS, farnell, digikey)
the only provider google finds is a chinese factory on alibaba.com that offers to produce them but you have to order about 5000 units minimum :'(
at about 0.05 USD per unit, that makes a stupid 250 USD without shipping...
it is a bit silly to throw out the windows 250 bucks
not to mention the not-very-green-friendly attitude of this approach
anyone knows a decent provider that would let me order such connectors in small quantities over to europe ?
i dunno maybe i overlooked something
can't wait to get this to work with my arduino board
