General Description

This IDC16 breakout board brings all 16 pins of its male dual row header out to screw terminal blocks, providing quick and secure connections. Each pin is also brought to solder pads (5 per pin) at 0.1" (2.54mm) spacing, allowing the easy addition of 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.

This break out board is perfect for production applications as well as experimentation and prototype work. It is well-suited for interfacing with microcontroller programming circuits, I/O ports, DAQ equipment, and any other device that uses a 2x8 16-position header connector. The header connector on this breakout board comes standard with long ejector latches. "Long ejectors" indicates that the ejectors are the correct length to accomodate IDC connectors with strain reliefs installed. A "box header" without ejectors is also available as a special-order option.

A dual row header is sometimes referred to as an "IDC Header", "IDC connector", or "ribbon cable connector". A breakout board is sometimes referred to as a "transition module", "terminal board", "terminal block", "breakout box", "breakout adapter", "terminator", or "interface module".
