Customer Comments

  • Do you plan on carrying the 4 pin version of this? It’s in the eagle library but I can’t find it anywhere on sparkfun. I’d prefer to order from you rather than direct from china… Not really looking to purchase 1000 of them.

  • I’d love to have either a strip of these to break apart in segments or a set of either 7 or 8. 6 is just not quite enough, and having one extra pin not attached doesn’t quite match up to the fit and finish I’m going for.

  • I see the SF eagle contains a 1x4 SMD header, Is there a 1x2 option available or is it just a matter of modifying the footprint?


  • Do you sell the SMD female headers, like the one on the FTDI Basic Breakout?

  • do you provide a through hole version of this header?

    • I just added it to the relateds below. 553.
      They are break-away and snap apart to the correct size easily.

  • measures on the images match those of the library? eagle I measured 1.5cm in width

    • Hum, scales seem incorrect. Each pin is spaced 0.1", so it should be a little over 0.5", which is 12.7mm, or 1.27cm just for the pins. eagle seems correct.

  • The main picture should be from the side looking at the product as I assumed “right angle” meant the top connector was bent 90 degrees. It’s more obvious if you enlarge it.

  • I understand that this is designed for smd pads, but could I use two of them across from each other on a breadbord’s top and bottom half to connect to an AVR programmer? Does it bend far enough? Is the strait 1/8" part enough to engage the sockets on the board?
