A row of right angle male headers - break to fit. 40 pins that can be cut to any size. Used with custom PCBs or general custom headers.
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.
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.

And you will never have enough of them. I have to order a strip or two with every other order. You can use wire cutters to get the amount you need, but I always just break them. And if you get a few too many broken off, you can use those in something else.
I haven't met bad male headers, these are like the others, great and useful
Always have a wide selection of pins available. Some times you just need a board to go at a right angle to another.
You need these. Well, maybe not all the time, but they can come in handy, so for under $2 you should buy a set to fill your toolbox.
These things, you just can’t have enough of them. One thing is you might lose one or two cutting them. That’s a given.

Is there a female counterpart that also has an 90? angle? The link posted is to the straight ones. Would be awesome for connecting two PCBs sideways.
If you need only 8 or less connections, the stackable female headers can easily be bent to a right angle. If you need more than 8 connections, you could probably just solder multiple 8-pin headers next to each other, or maybe glue them together.
Pretty sure these are made by 4UCON: 00892 Datasheet
are these silver plated? I am looking for silver or silvercloride plated right angle headers 16 pins or break away...
These headers are gold-flash coated. Out of curiosity, what's your application? I was under the impression that silver-plated conductors are subject to tarnishing problems...
I know probably a lot less than you but I thought the same thing, plus why use silver over gold as a conductor for long-term use?
Any idea when these will come in stock?
Where is the female counterpart to this? I can't find it...
Are there plugs that will work with this header? I'm aware of the female counterpart to this, but I'm looking for something that's easy to crimp or solder to the end of a cable.
michael: you /may/ be looking for a jumper wire:
you can also find these or similar in discarded computer cases; generally there's one connecting each of the pc speaker, power led, and hdd led to the motherboard
while you're plundering, dont forget to grab the cmos battery :]
The pin lengths are really about 6mm x 3mm. The pins are 0.025" square. A dimensionally similar part, except it has only 36 pins, is Mouser part number 649-68016-236HLF.
any datasheet for these? if used with the female right angle headers header what is the spacing between the vertical pins?
