    I'm trying to identify a specific board to board connector type for a project I'm working on. I'd like to create or find a ribbon that can extend the distance between these connection points as I need to place one of the boards slightly farther away (about 1 - 2cm). This connector is very very small! Here are some images and measurements that I obtained to the best of my ability. Any help or advice would be appreciated, thanks!

    Pin width: 0.173mm
    Gap between pins: 0.213mm

    check "samtec.com"
    what is "center of pin to center of pin" pin spacing? (commonly referred to as pitch)

    and good luck finding a ribbon to bridge the gap..probably not gonna happen.

    Thanks for the reply mcgyvr! I'll get back to you with the requested spacing shortly. If there's no such thing as a ribbon for this type of gap, is a rigid spacer/extender something that might exist? I'll look at samtec.com

    Do you have a part number for this connector or its mate? If not, do you have any idea who makes it?

    I have seen connectors like this in catalogs but have never used one. There seem to be a number of similar connectors from different manufacturers.

    EDAC have them, they are called card edge connectors, the contact spacing is .156" (3.96mm).
    BTW 12.5mm is only 1/2"??
    Max.

    Hello All and thank you for your help. Unfortunately there is no identifiable part number or manufacturer, so I don't have a 100% confirmed match. There's two that are prime candidates, one being the 0.4mm SlimStack by molex (see link) and the other Panasonic.

    http://www.molex.com/webdocs/datasheets/pdf/en-us/5031085010_PCB_HEADERS.pdf

    I'm hoping it's the molex as I'll be able to use a SlimStack compatible High Speed Flex Assembly as an extension ribbon. See link:

    In any case the only way to find out for sure is to order some samples. I'll post my findings once I try them. Cheers and thanks for the help!
