Make connections quickly and reliably with this breakout board, which brings every pin of its 68-pin Half-Pitch D-type connector out to screw terminals.
Each pin, including shield, is also brought to solder pads (2 per pin) at 0.1" spacing,
allowing easy addition of pin headers or other components.
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 breakout board features push-in spring connection terminal blocks. These screwless spring clamp terminal blocks allow connections to be made very quickly and efficiently. The spring terminal connections are reliable and secure, but wires can be connected and disconnected in a fraction of the time required with standard screw terminal blocks. Simply depress the actuator button on top of the terminal block, insert or remove the wire, and release the button. Done! In addition, screwless spring connections can offer better results in environments where vibration could potentially loosen standard screw terminal block connections. If your application requires screw terminals rather than spring terminals, please consider the BRKBDP68FV1 design.
National Instruments™ uses the 68-pin half-pitch DSUB connector on some of their DAQ cards and accessories. This Winford breakout board is a good option for interfacing to these National Instruments products. Note that NI™ actually uses two different styles of 68-pin connectors: the VHDCI, and the half-pitch DSUB (0.050 D-type). For more information on VHDCI connection products, please see our BRKAVH68FV1 breakout board page. See our connector guide if you need help determining which type of connector you have.
National Instruments offers several 68-pin half-pitch DSUB breakout boards with varying layout and functional options. The Winford BRKBDP68FV1 and BRKBDP68MV1 breakout boards are very similar in function to the basic NI models CB-68LP and CB-68LPR. The main difference is that Winford offers both Male and Female connector options, while the NI offers only a male connector board. This may affect your cable selection.

This breakout board is perfect for production applications as well as experimentation and prototype work. It is helpful for working with data acquisition (DAQ) equipment, control systems, and other devices that use the 68-pin 0.050 series DSUB 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 Half-Pitch DSUB (HPDSUB) series of connectors provides a compact arrangement of pin contacts on 0.05" centers, which is tighter than full-size DSUB connectors. Winford Engineering currently utilizes HPDSUB connectors from Amp™ / TE Connectivity™ on these breakout boards; connector details are listed below.

These breakout boards are general-purpose in nature and useful when interfacing to a variety of equipment. The 68-pin HPDSUB connector has traditionally been known as the SCSI-3 (SCSI-III) connector. It is also used in data aquisition and I/O applications. National Instruments™ has made extensive use of this connector on their I/O equipment.
