Pin Header Connector
A pin header (often abbreviated as PH, or simply header) is a form of electrical connector. It consists of one or more rows of male pins typically spaced 2.54 millimetres (0.1 in) apart, but common sizes also include 5.08 millimetres (0.2 in), 5.00 millimetres (0.197 in), 3.96 millimetres (0.156 in), 2.00 millimetres (0.079 in), 1.27 millimetres (0.05 in) and 1.00 millimetre (0.04 in). The distance between pins is commonly referred as pitch in the electronic community.
In the past, a pin header was known as a Berg connector, but the term fell out of favor because pin headers are manufactured by many companies.
