The prolific Pmod ports and female terminated MTE cables available for Digilent FPGA boards and Test and Measurement devices provide a convenient way to connect peripherals and probe signals during the prototyping process. However often times a connection needs to be made between two female ports. The six-pin header and gender changer is ideal for facilitating and creating a secure connection between two female ports.

They come as a dual male header with 6 pins, but can be broken into smaller sets or indidvidual pins as needed. These headers are different than the typical pin header as the plastic spacer is equidistant from each end, providing the best option for gender changing female MTE cables. 

This is the same set of pin header and gender changers that comes with the Analog Discovery. 

  • Changes gender for any 6-pin female header, female to male
  • Connects any 2 digilent 6-pin cables together
  • 0.64 mm pin width
  • 6.35 ± 0.2 mm pin length
  • Pins space 2.54 mm apart
  • Ships in a pack of 5
  • Five 6-pin header/gender changers

Quickly find what you need to get started and reduce mean time to blink.

    Useful for interfaces

    Use them for individual test points on breadboards as well as proto-boards. Also useful for interfacing with cables. I agree with others that the extra length gives a better connection to breadboards.

    Don't loose these!

    These are longer than your usual header pins so the lead stays on better. Good thing you can get more.
