Core Skill: Soldering

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.

1 Soldering

Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

  • Este conector é para Arduino ?

  • Whats the library for this in Eagle?

  • You can easily lift the conductors and move them over to the other slots. Use some pliers to bend them straight.

  • Just to let everyone know, this item is only one RJ-11 connector, NOT 2 like the photo depicts. I found out the hard way and had to make a second order for the 2nd connector needed for my project.

  • Use these and get the RJ45 breakout board (BOB-00716). The big pins won't fit but snip them off and superglue the connector to the board and solder the pins and a header. Works GREAT to get RJ11 or 12 phone cable to the breadboard.

    • A couple of minutes with your Dremmel tool or a small file and you can elongate the mounting holes of the RJ-45 breakout toward the center. It doesn't take much. This will allow you to use the board with an RJ-11 jack and still heat stake the mounting pins rather than super gluing.

  • Just for those interested. These do not fit standard through hole boards, you have to have a custom built board for these.
    Either their break out board or your own custom Pcb.
    The pin layouts are shifted 50% off center for the second row. So while one set of pins fit, the second set do not.
