A Source for Molex connectors?

Post by Jeff » Fri Apr 05, 2019 2:07 am

The 48 pin backplane consists of 2 parts:

The 12 pin edge connectors: Molex 09-52-3123

The 12 pin male connectors: Molex 26-48-1125

Does anyone know of a cheap source for these? Digi-Key is pretty expensive right now.

It depends on the definition of cheap. For some reason, the Digikey search is hanging right now. Mouser has both in stock, although the 09-52-3123 is designated end-of-life, and is slated to be discontinued by the manufacturer. They are both about $1.75 ea. Octopart is a good place to search for parts. I don't know of any cheap surplus caches of these parts.

Cheers,

Dave

I have discovered an alternate part on DigiKey: Use the 24 pin one and cut it in half!

Digikey PN: WM50007-24-ND. $2.30CDN each when buying 10+ which works out to $1.30 each... which is tolerable.

I am still looking for the edge connectors.
