These breakout boards bring all 40 pins of a Mini D Ribbon Female connector out to double deck screw terminal blocks for easy connection and prototyping work. Each pin is also brought to solder pads (3 per pin) at 0.1" spacing, allowing the addition of small components or 0.1" 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 permanent installations. They are well-suited for interfacing with data acquisition equipment or any other devices that use a Mini D Ribbon connector. A breakout board is sometimes referred to as a "transition module", "terminal board", "terminal block", "breakout box", "breakout adapter", "terminator", or "interface module".
The Mini Delta Ribbon (MDR) series of connectors provides a compact arrangement of durable sliding 'ribbon' contacts. The high contact density and good performance at high speeds have yielded many applications for this connector type. These are 'half-pitch' connectors, meaning that the contact spacing is tighter than full-size Centronics connectors, such as those used on our BRKDC36F or BRKDC50F breakout boards. The 'half-pitch' connectors utilize contacts on 0.05" centers.
