Arduino Nano Pin Size for Sockets

I can't seem to find this information in datasheets or elsewhere. What is the pin size of the nano?

Will these work with the nano?

Forgive this, but otherwise I always buy the wrong thing :/

The header pins shipped with Nanos, which are the same as the pins that would fit in Uno headers are 0.64cm The machined pin contact headers in your DigiKey links are not compatible. http://www.jameco.com/Jameco/Products/ProdDS/160882.pdf http://www.jameco.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_10001_10001_70755_-1

pin size for all UNO/NANO/MINI are .025 square.,

you linked to machined round pin sockets, will not work unless you get the right size. the acceptable male pin that it will accept is on the data sheet. make sure it will be large enough for the square pins of the arduino / nano

you can find machined sockets that are for round pins that you can force the pins into, but it is not easy to insert or remove.

there are lots and lots of suppliers.

you have entered the one place that is mind boggling.

you have a start of the art device, requireing hundreds of thousands of man hours, they had to develope clean rooms, microscopic printing. then make the facilities get the raw materials, make IC's, then sell them for pennies.

on the other hand, a machine that might be left over from the 1800's stamps out these forked bits and they are stuffed into plastic, technology they had in the 1800's, but the price is more.

try to find screw terminals.

My main issue is that these plastic, squarish headers are so tall and my nano+header won't fit in the enclosure I am using. I need to find a low profile solution. I noticed that the regular IC sockets I use seem to accept the nano's pins. I just can't seem to fins a 1x15 row of it.

you can find shorter headers. look at the xbee headers. not sure of they are 0.05 spacing, if so, remove every other pin.

you can get the round ones you showed in wire wrap, (long tail) with various lengths of tails. you can get IC sockets. that is what I use. get them in the right count, cut them, use the NANO as the alignment tool when soldering.

I think I can use a regular 2x32 IC socket (http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/4832-6000-CP/3M5470-ND/1133623) and just remove the last two rows. I test fitted my (broken) nano into a 2x8 socket and it seems to fit quite snugly.

you can remove the pins pretty easily to make sure you do not solder or plug it in wrong.

Machine pins, sometimes called Swiss machine pins, are lower profile than the usual Arduino headers. If I am running out of space like that then I usually find I need to solder directly to remove the header entirely.
