Kits Provide Key Interconnect Solutions for Four Popular Electronics Platforms

New Albany, IN: Samtec, a privately held $662MM global manufacturer of a broad line of electronic interconnect solutions, proudly announces the release of four unique Expansion Connector Sample Kits for Makers. These new kits allow continued growth and stacking of the most popular electronics platforms using standard 0.100″ (2.54mm) centerline IDC cables, sockets and headers.

CCR CCPRapid prototyping of innovative projects using open-source electronic platforms typically requires basic connectors and cable assemblies. Samtec has developed Expansion Connector Sample Kits for four of the most popular platforms:

  • Arduino Uno R3 Expansion Connector Sample Kit
  • BeagleBone Black Expansion Connector Sample Kit
  • ARM mbed Application Board Expansion Connector Sample Kit
  • Raspberry Pi 3 Expansion Connector Sample Kit

“Makers and tech-savvy DIYers demand solutions that simplify the design process,” said Matt Burns, Product Marketing Manager at Samtec, Inc. “Samtec’s Expansion Connector Sample Kits for Makers remove the guess work in idenfifying the correct interconnect solutions for prototyping with the most popular electronics platforms.”

Samtec’s Expansion Connector Sample Kits for Makers will be available in early summer from distributors or directly from Samtec. The Expansion Connector Sample Kits for Makers will debut in Zone 2 Booth 2519 at Maker Faire Bay Area in San Mateo, CA from May 19-21, 2017.
