General Description

These breakout boards bring all 25 pins of a DB25 connector out to screw terminal blocks for easy connection and prototyping work. They are available with both male and female connectors. The BRK25M has a male connector and the BRK25F has a female connector. Each pin is also brought to solder pads (4 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. These boards are useful in working with National Instruments data aquisition cards, CNC equipment, and any other device that utilizes a DB25 connector. A breakout board is sometimes referred to as a "transition module", "terminal board", "terminal block", "breakout box", "breakout adapter", or "interface module".

Connector Style

These breakout boards are available with either a Right Angle connector or a Straight ("Vertical") connector. The terms Right Angle and Straight refer to the connector itself, NOT the relationship of the mating cable to the plane of the PCB. In fact, the cable mating to a Right Angle connector is parallel to the PCB, while the cable mating to a Straight connector is perpendicular to the PCB. These are pictured below:

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.
