Q10076 68-line pin-and-socket I/O connector

Tags: Help, xDAP, analog I/O

Applies to: xDAP, accessory boards with 68-line pin-and-socket connector

I have a board with a 68-line pin-and-socket connector for analog I/O. How should I connect to it?

Female (receptable, socket) 68-line pin-and-socket type connectors are used for analog I/O on the xDAP. They are D-shaped connectors with a double row of sockets on 0.050-inch centers. They mate with male (plug) 68-line connectors on connecting cables. A picture of the pin-and-socket connector is shown below:
