Board > Board Connectors

None of the connectors in the BOM for the SMR-4 board seem to match the ones that came with my Shruthi-1 kit for connecting 1 board to the other. I ordered the Digi-Key one listed
http://search.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?WT.z_header=search_go&lang=en&site=uk&keywords=3M9518-ND&x=0&y=0
and the pins appear to be too short to work (and definitely much shorter than the ones that came with my Shruthi kit).

The Farnell

and Reichelt

ones look similarly short.

Anyone got a source for the correct, long-pinned ones?

The Reichelt part works, although i would not call it RoadSavy…

Thanks fcd72. I wonder where pichenettes got the kit ones from though. They work perfectly…

The place where I get them from has a MOQ of 1000 :slight_smile:

But you can find the exact same part at Sparkfun or Coolcomponents - they call it an Arduino shield header

Ah, thanks pichenettes. I’ll get some from there.

Cheers,
