Any idea of what the connector from the right is named?

  • \$\begingroup\$ That's a board to board connector. Can you use a scope to identify any markings? Other useful information would be the connector dimensions and pitch. \$\endgroup\$ – Jason Jul 23 '12 at 18:39
  • \$\begingroup\$ Do you have a better picture of the right hand one? \$\endgroup\$ – Oli Glaser Jul 23 '12 at 19:07

    \$\begingroup\$ What's the left one doing there? You only ask about the other one. \$\endgroup\$ – stevenvh Jul 23 '12 at 19:11
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Oli - I think it's the one in my answer. Better picture. \$\endgroup\$ – stevenvh Jul 23 '12 at 19:11

    \$\begingroup\$ @Kortuk - Why was this converted to a comment? It completely answers his question. He asked what type of connector the photo to the right was. It is a board to board connector. I could delete the request for more information on the exact part and it would still be a complete answer eh? \$\endgroup\$ – Jason Jul 24 '12 at 4:04

The left one is called Micro-MaTch™ connector, and it's a board to flat cable

or board-to-board connector. This is a two-part connector, but there are also versions where you solder the flat cable holding part directly, so that it can't be removed.

The other one is a board-to-board connector, like Jason says.

Usually you'll have a couple of them, so that the boards can't rotate relative to the other one. This is tricky, though, as the least mispositioning will cause strain on the solder connections.

  • \$\begingroup\$ What type of board to board connector is that?, I'm bumping into lots of different types and cannot find that specific one. \$\endgroup\$ – dukeofgaming Aug 2 '12 at 15:24
  • \$\begingroup\$ @duke - It could be a JMC connector by JST. \$\endgroup\$ – stevenvh Aug 2 '12 at 15:37
