SwitchPad: LaunchPad Gender Changer


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


  I got fed up with male headers on the LaunchPad, so I made up a small PCB to gender change the LaunchPad. It has the nice side effect that it is easy to switch my LaunchPad among different projects. Check it out

Not bad. Did you have to cut it manually? or did the board house do it. I like the way it bridges over to the other jumpers.

@roadrunner84: I tried the double header solution but I think it only works well with badly toleranced headers. I could not get it to work consistently.

 

@bluehash: What's depicted is the OSH park prototype I made. As it was my first PCB of course I made the mistake of not fixing my perimeter edge cuts, so I got a solid rectangle. The PCB kit I will have for sale are properly cut and are tab routed in the middle so the pair snaps apart.

LariSan, the price per unit is $3.15, including PCB, 4 1x10 female headers, 2 2x2 extra long headers, and 1 2x3 extra long headers. I am still putting my store together but if you PM me, we can set up a paypal payment or the like. I hope this isn't a dealbreaker, but the purple was a prototype; the production version is red!
