General Description

Centronics, MDR, VHDCI, HPDSUB  Connector Guide

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.

The connector used on this product goes by several different names, including Mini D Ribbon, Mini Delta Ribbon, MDR, Mini Centronics, Half-Pitch Centronics, HPCN, HPCN40, Half-Pitch CN, and Micro Centronics. It is also occasionally referred to as a SCSI2 connector, though that is not typically a proper use of the term.


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".

MDR Connector Details

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.

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.
