Quick attach FTDI cable?

by Dman9000 on Mon Jan 30, 2017 7:43 pm

Does anybody know of a cable that will connect to the FTDI holes to program and then easily remove without the need for male pins soldered onto the board? I've searched around for something like this with little luck. I'm not sure if there just isn't anything like this out there or if I'm not searching the correct term.

I was thinking something like the DMM spring loaded probes, where you'd compress the head of the probe when connecting to the board to and when released the pins would expand or clamp down locking them into the through holes allowing you to quickly upload the code then remove.

Thanks!

What you are looking for is "Pogo Pins" https://learn.adafruit.com/how-to-make- ... g/overview

That's exactly what I'm looking for! I never would have found those.

Thank you!
