Does anybody know the part numbers for the sil sockets used on the arduino? , or another supplier in the UK.
Farnell or Rapid sell them.
Yes, but I can’t find them in the online catalogues
Not the same as the Arduino ones, but i use these http://uk.farnell.com/samtec/bcs-150-l-s-te/receptacle-2-54mm-vert-50way/dp/1667505, you can get smaller sizes too
Thanks, exactly what I was looking for.
Beige - What do you use to cut these down to size please?
hehe, It ends up sacrificing one of the sockets, but it does the job
The male strip pins can be cut right between the pins with a knife or diagonal cutters, but the females should be cut right in line with the pin of a sacrificial pin position and then file smooth to the last desired pin position.
