GIVEAWAY: Premium Make Your Own Cable Sample Pack

Posted on Thursday, May 8th, 2014 in components, Free PCBs by DP


Today the Premium Make Your Own Cable Kit is available at Seeed Studio. During development we ended up with tons of connectors, so we kitted them up into a sample pack. 200 cable kit sample packs are now available in the free PCB store.

If you’d like to get one now but don’t have a coupon, and we’ll give away 10 coupons to commentors in this thread tomorrow morning.

The Premium Make Your Own Cable Kit contains enough connectors to make an (almost) lifetime supply of cables for standard 0.1″ (2.54mm) headers. Choose the connector, or combination of connectors, that best fit your project. Slide the pre-crimped rainbow ribbon cable into the connector until you hear a snap. Now you’re ready to go!

The sample pack contains:

  • 2 x 2 pin crimp housing
  • 3 x 2 pin crimp housing
  • 4 x 2 pin crimp housing
  • 5 x 2 pin crimp housing
  • 6 x 2 pin crimp housing
  • 1 x 10cm cable with crimps

    Hi to everybody,

    As Springtime usally means housecleaning , i see in this giveaway proposal a kind a celeste message…

    It will give me the opportunity to stop trying to solder wires on male pins , burning the plastic base and usually disconnnecting just after that Arghhh !!! Here is a chance to build cosmetically good looking pcb with no risk of short circuit when moved, i have no word for that … Thrust me, such a kit will greatly update my poor handyman condition… (Less breadboard and more pcb, that will be my new designing rule …)
    Thank you very much
    Have a nice day

    Hope I’m not too late.

  133. partsplus says:
