    @akshay : yes sure there are benefits of making them yourself. But are you sure thats the case even with 500+ units ?

    No, By 500+ i meant that if you buy 500+ you'll get them at really really cheap price. Obviously making 500 connectors is a tough job.

    I had an idea , what if we skip the cable and just give bent connectors ?



    So there will be 6 bent connectors, and programmer can be simply plugged into the dev board. If someone has male headers on his board he can simply splice together two female headers and he is done.

    well
    depends if the target board has enough room around the programming port.
    But then I guess the user always has the option to remove whatever connector you provide and solder in wires directly on this side and have whatever connector he wants on the other end.

    BTW, is it possible to have PCB footprint for both 6pin as well as the 10 pin connectors ?

    Just a thought here - those cheap header pins get oxidized after a few months, rendering the connector useless.
    If you are using header pins, make sure they are coated with an anti-oxidizing material.

    considering what pretheek said,... you might get those anodized right angled headers for cheap. its like >5 rs something for 30 connectors...
