I've looked everywhere on Digikey and Mouser and can not find a compatible board-to-wire header that can accept a JST type SM 3-pin 2.5mm female that looks like this. ...

Are these connectors available?

These connectors are commonly used for WS2812B RGB LED strings.

  • \$\begingroup\$ As the datasheet says, JST's SM range are all wire-to-wire. Probably easier to make up a board-to-wire adapter fly lead using a connector of your choice at the board end. \$\endgroup\$ – Roger Rowland Nov 15 '16 at 4:34

    \$\begingroup\$ The existing incoming wires are sized to reach the would-be connector, so the fly leads would add extra length and bulk so I would like to find a way to avoid them. Also always nice to avoid needing an extra custom part. But definitely a fall back. Thanks! \$\endgroup\$ – bigjosh Nov 15 '16 at 13:24
