View Full Version : Header pins

03-18-2007, 04:06 AM
I am trying to find a source for some breadboard header pins, I have seen plenty of header pins, but nothing that I could use on a breadboard. The standard header pins, one side is short, meant for soldering to a pcb, but does not work out well for the breadboard. I tried googling, but nothing comes up.

Just look for longer pins, and then slide the plastic down a tad to be able to insert onto a breadboard...
I have done it this way and works slick.

Look around at www.digikey.com (http://www.digikey.com)

"SIP header" or "SIP strip"

There are assorted dimensions and configurations (pin lengths, right angle, etc.)

Update -- The more pins on a strip, the harder it is to push into a breadboard. The pins are better anchored in the strip in some than others.
