It's a surface mount female "push-fit" type socket designed to be used to plug a Raspberry Pi HAT onto a Raspberry Pi A+/B+/2/3. The sockets are push-fit, so harder to use than the Thru-Hole type headers, but for the slickest, slimmest fit, this header is recommended! These are individually packaged parts from a pick & place reel, but come complete with the pick and place plate. The pins are large enough to be hand soldered, so perfect for prototyping and small batch runs!
The part is available in SMT bulk reels of 800 parts. If you'd like to order simply contact us!
