Hey all

Does anyone know what plugs are used for the jumper leads?
I'm wanting to make up some more/longer ones and a few multipole ones for the programming interface for the ATmega but I can't figure out the Farnell website to find which ones I need.

Found the header strip but not the single pole connectors.
Also can't figure out if they come with the crimp connectors or if they are bare housings.

Am I just being dense or is the Farnell website /THAT/ hard to search? o.O

Farnell is only easy to search if you know what you are looking for.
I think this is what you might need:-
Crimp Socket
Order Code:
1111153
http://uk.farnell.com/te-connectivity-amp/794611-1/contact-socket-26-30awg/dp/1111153

However that does not include the crimping tool. The one they have is very expensive you should be able to get a simple one for £15 or so.

Hi
I bought some f-f jumpers from proto-pic in the UK

Part No. PPPRT-08430 these are 6 inch
Part No. PPPRT-09389 these are 12 inch

http:// proto-pic.co.uk
Look very similar quality to the ones supplied by farnell with the kit.

Think they are from Sparkfun in the States

These look just right. Looks a great site with loads of interesting goodies and MUCH easier to navigate the RS or Element 14. Thanks for the link. There is no minimum order amount - great.

Also, if you aren't in a hurry for delivery, check ebay...

I use them quite regularly.
They have some stock I've not found anywhere else apart from on US websites.

Also one thing I really like, they use small plastic boxes for shipping. They are great for component storage. (Well if you order something large you get a larger plasic box :) )
Shipping is normally next day (I usually order in the evening and get a conformation my order has shipped the following afternoon)
