General Description

These breakout boards bring all 15 pins of a DB15HD (high density, 3 row) connector out to screw terminal blocks for easy connection and prototyping work. They are available with both male and female connectors. The BRK15HDM has a male connector and the BRK15HDF has a female connector. Each pin is also brought to solder pads (5 per pin) at 0.1" spacing, allowing easy addition of standard pin headers. Please note that the breakout boards are manufactured with a connection between each connector pin and the corresponding terminal block position; no soldering of any type is necessary. The solder pads simply provide an area for making optional connections to additional headers or other components.

These break out boards are perfect for experimentation and prototype work, as well as for use in the educational laboratory. They are well-suited for interfacing with data acquisition equipment or any other devices that use a DB-15HD connector. A breakout board is sometimes referred to as a "transition module", "terminal board", "terminal block", "breakout box", "breakout adapter", or "interface module".

Technically, the correct term for a DB15HD connector is DE15, but that term is not commonly used.

Mounting Options

These products are available in two different mounting variants. Product numbers ending with -DIN come with DIN clips already installed and ready to snap onto 35mm or 32mm DIN rail. Product numbers ending with -FT have stick-on rubber feet installed on the bottom side, allowing for benchtop use or panel mounting. For panel mounting, we suggest 1/4" nylon standoffs under the mounting holes, and #6 screws.
