    Any plans for a breakout board for this? Just eyeballing it, it seems like the pins might not be quite long enough to make solid connection into a breadboard.

    It looks like the scales on the pictures are wrong. This thing is 16mm long, not 32. The width and height isn't 3cm either.

    Love how they tell you the pinout in the datasheet.

  • vgrassia / about 13 years ago / 1

    I understand that the datasheet says not more than 1A per contact, but would this part not function properly (or melt) at 1.2 amps on one of the contacts? The rest of the contacts would be under 500mA.

    Are these gonna be back in stock anytime soon?

B ready to plug and play.

Not out of poor design but simply due to high use. It is a good idea to have a spare in the bin when one fails. Also nice to have a usb socket to port into a project box.
