# Is there a lower form factor alternative for common female header pins

I am looking for an alternative for the usual female header pins, one that has a lower profile than the traditional 8.3mm/0.33in high female header pins.

It doesnt have to be a through hole component, I found one that i really like but i am failing to search its name.

It from the raspberry pi POE HAT, a good thing about this (for my case at least) is it can be set on the other side of the board thus lowering the profile even more

but if there are others please do tell

• i have seen a connector that mounted on the underside of the PCB ... the PCB had holes ... the pins would go through the PCB and through the connector – jsotola Aug 15 at 4:24
