Custom DIY IDC

Just created a simple 20pin to 10pin IDC PCB and while its on the way from OSHPark I forgot to order the one part I need from digikey …

Its a simple part. I decided to create one while I wait for the PCB. Why even order the part it if I need it just for me and only 1. Below are some images to show the creation of the part. Super simple. I removed the pins from the male connector just to allow easier insertion and removal during glue alignment.

Parts used:
1x Generic 2×10 Female Header
1x Plastic Rectangle (4mm x 7mm & 1.5mm thick)
1x Crazy Glue
1x 2×10 Male Header (for alignment)

Boards came in today.. worked like a charm 🙂
