I have a Digilent chipKIT Pro MX7 microcontroller development board. The majority of the boards I/O is through what Digilent calls a "Pmod" connector. What they really are is just 2x6 headers with a 0.1" pitch.
However, the connectors on the board are sockets. I'd like to connect things to this board through cable assemblies, I'm having a surprisingly difficult time finding a mating connector for these. I've found many housings, but they all say they're for female socket contacts and not male pin contacts.
It feels like things would be vastly easier if they had put male headers on the board, but it is what it is.
Is this kind of connector without a shroud something that actually exists? Or would I have to make some ugly workaround using a board mount connector?
(PS: I'm looking to make a cable assembly for all the pins, not use individual jumper wires)
