We’re big fans of the Intel® Edison Compute Module but the connector’s not generic like everyday header, and can be a bit difficult to find. No longer! This 70-pin receptacle header for the Intel Edison connects to the Edison Compute Module and allows breakout boards to be added more easily. If you’re in the Edison block business, this is for you.
It’s a tiny 70-pin connector that’s main function is with the Intel Edison. The connector is fine pitch and fragile, we’ve found it hard to get off once you add it to your Edison if it isn’t soldered down already, so be careful. Please also note, these are rated for only 30 connection cycles, use care and pull directly perpendicular to the connector plane to avoid bending or damaging it.
Once added, it’ll add 3mm of height to your Edison boards socket – you can clear the metal can of the Edison and possibly even tuck a few thin components or chips underneath the Edison for a smaller PCB!
One connector per order, the Intel Edison is not included.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
