Mounting a FEZ Mini


Hi Folks
I am having some issues deciding how I am going to mount my FEZ Mini

I need a very low profile system but the FEZ with it’s very long pins makes that difficult.

So I have 2 possibilities.

  1. Use a low profile socket and then snip the FEZ’s pins down so that they will fit


  1. Bend the FEZ’s pins out at an angle and use 0.1 connectors to acess the pin’s

Just wondering if anyone else had a similar situation and how they fixed it.

Many thanks


If you can find a low profile female headers then go with snipping part of the pins off


I changed my Domino to 90 degree headers and it works “OK”, but the footprint got larger, obviously.
