    Hi guys. I've been searching for a while now and couldn't seem to find the switch I'm looking for.

    I need a small DPDT slide-switch with a A68-A31 package (according to Eagle). I've attached a picture with dimensions of what I'm looking for. Does anyone know where I can get one of these, whether you have some to sell, or just have a link to an online store that carries them? I would very much appreciate any help. Thanks guys!

    I'm also looking for some of these connectors, but since I don't know what they're called, it's making things difficult. Hopefully you guys can help :D

    I'll need two of the 2-pin connectors and one of the 3-pin connectors. Thoughts? Ideas?

    Thanks!

    Thanks a lot for the suggestion. So far I'm finding tons of switches with .1" spacing between the rows, but none with .2" spacing....

    Woah, $3.41 for a tiny switch? :eek:

    I'll have to think about that one. Thanks for the link :)

    Really hard to find. Might be easier create your own component if you don't find existing switches with the correct pin pitch in your library.

    Building my own switch would be kind of difficult, I think :D I'm assembling this board and am in need of a real-life switch for it ;)

    I think I might have found someone who can source the switches, but that leaves me with the connectors. Does anyone recognize the footprint of the connectors in the second post? I don't know what they're called. All I know is that they're in the "con-amp-mt" Eagle library, under the name L02P (for the 2-pin ones), and L03P (for the 3-pin ones). I'm looking for a supplier for these connectors.

    I very much appreciate your help! :)

    Best wishes

    LOL. I meant creating the component layout of a real-life switch in your EAGLE library... :rolleyes:

    Hahaha, oops :D

    Unfortunately, the boards have already been made. I should have sourced the components before ordering the boards. I'll definitely be more careful about that next time :rolleyes:

    Here is a switch that conforms to your dimensions. As for the connector, look for a "shrouded male header".

    The 600 series M2 footprint (and likely others) has your spacing as well. Probably much less $$ than NKK. Mouser has them.

    http://www.e-switch.com/Portals/0/Series_Pdf/600.pdf

    It looks like an AMP MTA-100 or CST-100 II series would do the job. At least, these are common series that you can actually buy. The catalog link from this page has drawings and variants. Mouser has the CST-100 series in stock.

    I've made that mistake, too. Over time, I have built my own library of components as I source them, some new, some updated from Eagle's libs but always with a real manufacturer's and Mouser/Digikey/Newark/Allied etc part number. Just copy/paste onto the order form as I lay out the board.

    The motor connectors, do you need connectors, or can you use these?

    Wow, $4.55 for a switch? :eek:

    Thanks very much for the suggestions. Especially regarding the connector. Now I have a place to start :)

    These links were very helpful, thank you :) I appreciate the help!

    I could probably use those, but I would prefer the regular connectors. I could use these as a last resort, if I absolutely had to.

    I wasn't quite sure what to look for, so I didn't bother. I'll check it out though :)
