This breakout board contains a 68-pin half-pitch D-type connector. Each of the 68 connector pins is brought out to screw terminal blocks, allowing connections to be made easily. Each pin is also brought to solder pads (2 per pin) at 0.1" spacing, allowing easy addition of 0.1" 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.
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.

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 Half-Pitch 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.
