View Full Version : BOE Header connector?

01-08-2012, 01:53 AM
Does anyone have a part number (Digikey if possible) for a 6-10" ribbon connector that will mate to the 2 row, 20 pin, .1"-spaced header on the BOE, and a mating header for the other end?

I plan to place a BOE in my next project along with a PCB with all of the additional components. The easiest interface would be a ribbon cable from the BOE header. I'm flexible as far as the configuration on the PCB side (male or female pins), but just want a mating pair.

I've been pouring through the Digikey pdf catalog but there are so many choices I have no idea what will be compatible with the BOE header.

The way I would do this is to get a ribbon cable assembly terminated on both ends with female header connectors, like this one:


Then, use a loose male header to mate the connector at one end to the connector on the BOE. This will not only save you money, but will eliminate any compatibility issues with a male cable end that will not only be shrouded -- based on the available parts I've seen -- but also keyed.
