Buying XinaBox Connectors from our Distributors

Buying XinaBox Connectors from our Distributors

There are 2 types of connectors that are used to clip xChips together:

  1. The square shaped xBus connectors - these are the most commonly used.
  2. The narrower xPDI connectors. These are only used to connect some of our cores to interface xChips (e.g. to connect a CS11 to an IP02) - they are necessary to flash code onto the core.

If you have a CC03 or CS11 core you will need an xPDI connector, otherwise use xBus connectors. There is more information on the product pages.

We are frequently asked how to find the connectors on our distributors website. This guide will show you how to do so for RS or Mouser:
