Two unsoldered(loose) Pin Headers are supplied with the board for free. The pin(mating) length is 3.0, 4.0 or 6.0mm. The number of pins depends on the iMod board. For most boards two 1x6 pin headers are supplied.
- Select 3.0mm if module is going to be soldered into place.
- Select 6.0mm if module is going to be plugged into standard 8.5mm high Female Socket.
- Select 4.0mm if module is going to be plugged into low profile 5.7mm high Female Socket.

3.0mm Pin Headers

Pin headers with 3.0mm long pins are assembled. Select this option if the module is going to be soldered into place. The picture on the right shows an example of an iMod module soldered onto a main board.

Header size (2 to 8 pin) depends on iMod board. Many boards will get a 2 pin header on one side, and a 4 or 5 pin on the other.

4.0mm Pin Headers

Pin headers with 4.0mm long pins are assembled. Select this option if the module is going to be plugged into a low profile 5.7mm high female socket (2.54mm grid).

Header size (2 to 8 pin) depends on iMod board. Many boards will get a 2 pin header on one side, and a 4 or 5 pin on the other.

6.0mm Pin Headers

Pin headers with 6.0mm long pins are assembled. Select this option if the module is going to be plugged into a standard 2.54mm female socket.

Header size (2 to 8 pins) depends on iMod board. Many boards will get a 2 pin header on one side, and a 4 or 5 pin on the other.

Round Swiss Pin Headers

Two 6 Pin headers with Round (Swiss) style pins are assembled. Select this option if the module is going to be plugged into female Round (Swiss) Sockets. This is very useful for prototyping! See picture on the right for some examples.

Typically the 6 pin female socket (low profile version) can be used for the main board.

We stock a range of swiss pin headers, available here.

Press-Fit Headers

Press-fit type pins are assembled. They can be pressed into 1.00mm holes on a 1.6mm thick (standard PCB thickness) target board. A press-tool might be required for production assembly. Once fitted to the target board, the board is very secure, and can not be removed by hand any more. The picture on the right shows an example of an iMod module mounted onto main board via press-fit connectors.
