I am trying to build a shield for an arduino mega.For that i need to know the type of the female connectors that are soldered in the pins of the arduino mega in order to choose the correct male connectors.

  • What kind of shield are you trying to build? Have you looked at the Arduino documentation...? Take a look! Mega link Jul 31 '15 at 12:20
  • Those are standard 0.1inch female/male headers.

  • I looke for sure but couldn't find anything about mechanical design Jul 31 '15 at 13:28

Look for male pin header strip, with 0.1 inch (2.54mm) pitch.

In single and dual row form.

Specifically they are:

  • 8x1 ADCL
  • 8x1 ADCH
  • 8x1 PWML
  • 8x1 PWMH
  • 8x1 Communication
  • 6x1 Power
  • 18x2 digital IO (on the side)
