What is a Board Mount PCB Header?

A PCB header contains several pin headers, which are a type of electrical connector that is often used for connecting to a ribbon cable connector or as a recipient for jumpers. Pin headers can be pin through hole or surface-mount and can be either straight or angled, with angled pin headers used to connect two boards together. Pin headers with a plastic surrounding box are called shrouded headers or box headers and are generally used in conjunction with a ribbon cable connector.

Types of Board Mount PCB Headers

There are many different kinds of board mount PCB headers. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by Type, Number of Positions, Termination, Pitch, Packaging Type and Style/Orientation. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.

The most common values for Pitch are 2 mm or 2.54 mm. We also carry board mount PCB headers with Pitch as high as 8 mm. The Number of Positions can be between 1 and 440, with 2, 3, 4, 6 and 10 positions being the most common values.
