I have ribbon cable which uses a staggered male IDC connector, which plugs into a corresponding staggered female PCB mount connector.
The following image shows the cable plugged in to the PCB connector.
The female connector is Wurth 690367180872 which looks like this:
I want to solder it on a stripboard. But the pins on the PCB connector are on a staggered grid as can be seen from the datasheet:
I have a couple of questions about this connector. Firstly, why are the pins staggered? Secondly, is it possible to solder this connector on to stripboard?
