JST Vertical Connector

Two pin, compact surface mount connector. We really like the solid locking feeling and high current rating on these small connectors.

    As a warning: Pin 1 of this part in the EAGLE library goes to GROUND. Don't get confused (as I did) by the fact there's a plus sign next to it in the schematic.

    Are the pictures switched between "vertical" and "right angle" connectors? It seems to me that the pictures shown on this page are "right angle" connectors.

      This is the surface mount version, so the "gull wing" connectors are parallel to the board, not perpendicular to it.

    Can't find it in the Eagle Lib. Anyone else got the same problem?

  • Is there a through-hole version for people who do not feel comfortable with soldering surface mount connectors? How difficult is it to solder this connector, if I have never done any surface mount soldering?

      This connector is actually pretty big. It will fit in a regular (.1") protoboard by bending the pins a little.
