Arduino Stacking Headers

I tried using wire wrap receptacles for an Arduino daughterboard and found that the insertion force was way too high for reliable usage. The alternative I found is Samtech Part numbers ESQ-108-14-T-S and ESQ-106-14-T-S. Unfortunately, only Arrow seems to stock them. Perhaps I'll carry them when I get the online store up and running.

These connectors work much better then the wirewrap sockets.

you do not need to purchase this connector through Arrow. You an buy it direct from Samtec and have it delivered in under 1 week. Order at 1-800-SAMTEC-9 or call my office at CBA Metro 201-444-6262.
