I am looking to incorporate a Teensy board on my PCB. I want to solder the Teensy PCB onto my PCB. But I also want to minimize the height above my PCB as much as possible. Hence, I DO NOT want to solder using regular header pins -- i.e. I DONT want this:
So I was thinking of the following options:
Using low profile header pins like this one -- https://www.pololu.com/product/2663 (plastic height is 1.5mm instead of usual 2.5mm). But I want to avoid the 1.5mm as well
Use straight pins like this - http://www.digikey.com/product-search/en?mpart=3560-2-00-15-00-00-03-0&vendor=54 -- and soldering the Teensy flat on my PCB. Is this a viable option?? A google search doesnt really show me examples of this being done.
What other tricks/tips can I use??
(I understand that the best way is to not use the Teensy board directly, and instead to design the Teensy ckt on my PCB. But for some reasons I do not want to get into that right now.)
