I recently bought a 9 degrees of freedom sensor stick to play with in tandem with my Arduino ADK:http://www.coolcomponents.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=36_58&products_id=640
Being somewhat dubious about how to connect this (especially since it's likely to be reused in various projects over time), I decided that perhaps some circuit board pins were the answer:http://www.maplin.co.uk/type-2145-pcb-solder-pins-1933
Is this the right approach? If it is, do you just put the pin through the hole and solder the underside?
I'm not really sure to approach this and don't want to damage my 9dof board so any tips and hints on how to make connections like this would be appreciated.
