Dog legged pin strip for breakout or shield

by oldfox on Mon Jan 28, 2013 12:59 pm

Hello,
I was perusing your goodies when I noticed a kit for either a breakout board or shield. It had one 8 or 10 female pin strip which had a dog leg in the pins to make up for the ODD spacing of 0.015" between the Mega2560 PWM strips. I think that would be the digital pins on an Uno board. I didn't really pay attention to what the product was, at the time. Now I want to look at it again and can't find it. I looked at "View All" with no luck.

Could you please tell me the product or a link to that product so I can find it again?
You folks have a kilo alpha site and company. The best of luck in the future.

TIA,
oldfox

Yes, you are thinking of the "magical 8-pin header" for the DIY shield: https://www.adafruit.com/products/187
These are not too had to make from regular stacking headers. http://www.adafruit.com/products/85
