Female Solderless Headers for FEZ Cobra?


#1

I just bought a FEZ Cobra. I’d like to put some female headers on it so I can use jumper wires with it. I’d prefer not to solder if I dont have to. Any ideas on what I can use?

Sparkfun makes some male solderless headers, but I’d prefer the female ones.

Also, the FEZ Cobra proto board requires soldering, correct?

The proto board requires soldering but it is removable. You get male/female headers for that.

http://www.sparkfun.com/products/115 is the female headers you want. Yes you’re going to have to solder them to the board, but that’s the most robust mechanical connection you’re going to get, and with potentially dodgy connections you can never be sure…

These are nice.

Work great with

You can always add one breakout pin on one end of the female jumper wire
