Special pin type headers are designed with a variety of unique pin types within a plastic base to enable connection to a board. These connectors are available in several different types, including DIP, DIL, header, plug, SIP, and SIL. Additionally, there are different contact types available, such as forked, male, post, slotted, solder cup, and turret.
These connectors come in a variety of position and pitch options to accommodate different application needs. Mounting options for special pin type headers include surface mount and through-hole. Surface mount connectors are mounted directly onto the surface of a PCB using soldering techniques, whereas through-hole connectors require pre-drilled holes in the PCB for insertion.
In summary, special pin type headers provide a versatile solution for connecting a variety of unique pins and contacts to electronic systems and devices. Connector types and contact types vary, with a range of position and pitch options available to meet specific requirements. Mounting options include surface mount and through-hole, providing flexibility in installation methods. By selecting the appropriate special pin type header, designers can ensure efficient and reliable connections in their electronic systems and devices.
