Socket Headers


What is a Socket Header connector?

A socket header connector is a female (receptacle) connector with metal contacts, which are inserted into a plastic base. Most often manufactured with single or dual rows, socket headers are also available with 3 or more rows. Socket header connectors are typically mated with pin header connectors (plug) providing a reliable and economical board-to-board connection.

Engineering options

Socket header connectors are available in vertical or right-angle orientations and can be supplied with PC tail (through hole) or SMT (surface mounted) termination styles. SMT style parts can be supplied with alignment posts to help facilitate placement onto the PCB prior to soldering. Socket headers are available for top mating or both top and bottom. These connectors are easy to customize.
