    For those who need to order these from Digikey, it looks like they are part number S5902-10-ND. But they're cheaper here!<br />
    (Sparkfun, do you mind when we do this?)<br />
    EDIT: I had the wrong part number! It should be correct now, I think. Anyway, still cheaper at Sparkfun.

    Can you order this in tape reels?

    Does anyone have Eagle library for this part?

    • Member #4134 / about 10 years ago / 1

      Turns out they do have this in their library https://github.com/sparkfun/SparkFun-Eagle-Libraries Find it in spark fun connectors, they have an 1X10 2mm smd version in the library.

      I would just copy/paste one out of SparkFun-RF.lbr, device: XBEE-1, package: XBEE_SMD.

    For anyone making a footprint, it appears this is a "D" style layout. Could someone from Sparkfun confirm this (and maybe add it into the part description?). Thanks!

    Any idea how to set up an eagle footprint for these?

    this is the 10 pin version, but i can't find the 8pin on your site (it's in your library)

    • I think we might have discontinued them.

      • erich81 / about 13 years ago / 1

        thanks, I found them on digikey, same part # as Alexander posted, except S5902-08-ND. I needed it for a breakout header, but didn't need full 10 pins.

Does the job

I designed my board around this socket because I came across it on the Sparkfun web site and it was exactly what I was looking for. I am a little bit disappointed that the price does not go down more quickly with quantity (I need them in the 100's)
