Connecting Jumpers to Olimex Male Header

Post by gsps » Sat Feb 21, 2009 5:46 pm

Does anyone have a good solution to connecting jumper wires to male headers? My objective is to connect signals from the Olimex board to a breadboard.

I've had female headers on other dev boards; just plug the jumper wire into the female header.

A female-female header adapter might work, but I can't find one (and that sounds expensive for 30x2 pins).

I've soldered female 1-pin connectors to jumper wires, but that is getting quite cumbersome.

Help is appreceiated!

If I only want a few pins connected I make up my own cables and connectors by buying the shells and terminals, cutting the shells down to the size I want, crimping the terminals and assembling the cables. Otherwise, I make up a ribbon cable connecting to a home-made PCB.
