What are these solder pins called?
« on: March 30, 2013, 08:49:24 am »
Hi All,

I'm trying to repair an old board that has some broken pins. They are 0.1" spacing, solder on one side and plugs into a standard DIP socket on the other. They are similar to machined IC socket pins, except a little longer.

Can someone help identify them? What exactly are they called? I tried looking through farnell/futurlec/ebay but can't find a good match.

Haven't seen those exact ones, but are these what you mean? One end fits into a machine socket, other end used to solder to a PCB.

Probably easiest to get standard length ones as above, and stack up using sockets. The sockets also give you a more easily replaceable unit when   they get damaged again.

Just go to the Samtec website and you can specify the exact length you want,

They make all their connectors to order, so no worries about minimum order quantities or suchlike
