General Description

These breakout boards bring all 15 pins of a DB15 connector (standard density, 2-row) out to screw terminal blocks for easy connection and prototyping work. They are available with both male and female connectors. The BRK15M has a male connector and the BRK15F has a female connector. Each pin is also brought to solder pads (5 per pin) at 0.1' spacing, allowing easy addition of standard pin headers.

These break out boards are perfect for experimentation and prototype work, as well as for use in the educational laboratory. They are well-suited for work with I/O cards, CNC equipment, and any other device that uses a DB-15 connector. A breakout board is sometimes referred to as a 'transition module', 'terminal board', or 'interface module'.

For mounting on a panel, we suggest the rubber feet version (-FT), 1/4' nylon standoffs under the mounting holes, and #6 screws.

Technically, the correct term for a DB15 connector is DA15, but that term is not commonly used.

Features


  • DB15 Male or Female connector
  • Perfect for prototyping game port circuits (joystick, MIDI, etc)
  • Screw terminal for each of the 15 lines, accomodates 16AWG to 26AWG
  • Solder pad connection space for all 15 lines
  • Supports addition of .1' pin headers
  • Board dimensions: 2.38' x 3.1'
  • Rubber feet or DIN rail mount

Connector Style

These breakout boards are available with either a Right Angle connector or a Straight ('Vertical') connector. The terms Right Angle and Straight refer to the connector itself, NOT the relationship of the mating cable to the PCB. In fact, the cable mating to a Right Angle connector is parallel to the PCB, while the cable mating to a Straight connector is perpendicular to the PCB. These are pictured below:

DIN Rail Mount Version

These products are also available with DIN rail mounting clips for quick and convenient mounting where DIN rail is used. Product numbers ending with -DIN come with DIN clips already installed and ready to mount. The clips allow mounting on standard 35mm rail as well as 32mm rail.
