General Description

These breakout boards bring all 37 pins of a DB37 connector out to screw terminal blocks for easy connection and prototyping work. They are available with both male and female connectors. The BRK37M has a male connector and the BRK37F 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. They are well-suited for work with I/O cards, data aquisition (DAQ) equipment, CNC equipment, and any other device that uses a DB-37 connector. A breakout board is sometimes referred to as a "transition module", "terminal board", or "interface module".

Technically, the correct term for a DB37 connector is DC37, but that term is not commonly used.

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.
