Metro M0 Express Headers

by farmermk1949 on Tue Jun 12, 2018 10:15 pm

Can PRODUCT ID: 3505, the Metro M0 Express, be purchased with through holes and the headers NOT installed? I have a project that requires me to install these on a motherboard. I'm presently using the Metro, but would like to migrate to the 32-bit processor.

I'm afraid we only make that one with the headers installed.

But, are the headers through hole instead of the original surface mount?

Yes, they're through-hole headers. You can remove them with the right tools and enough patience.

I bought one of these [ID:3505] on April 17, 2018 and it came with surface mount headers, not through hole.

Has the product changed? I'd really like through hole since I'd like to install stacking headers so I can plug in a shield under the Metro M0 Express.

I'll check with the fab team on that.

Wow. You ordered within days of the change over to through hole. There was indeed a design change that took effect April 27. Check the bottom of the product page:
As of April 27, 2018 we have updated the design to have lower analog noise, replaced the SMT DC jack and headers with through-hole headers and jack, and now ship with CircuitPython already loaded.

So if you order now, you should get through hole.

Thank you for the information - and for the design change. I'll order another one soon. Through hole is more consistent with the Arduino philosophy.
