6. Headers – M

In this section we are adding all the M headers. These will be used to connect to peripheral boards for additional custom Bowie functionality. In this section you will need the 5 M headers.

Insert 6x 3 pin M headers into the servo header area, near the top edge of the board.

Here are the headers inserted into the board. They complete the entire spaces, filling all the available pads.

Apply painters tape to the headers to keep them in place before flipping the board. Then, flip the board.

This is what the leads look like on the back of the board. Ensure that the components are still flush with the top side of the board, as it may have moved slightly during flipping.

Solder the pads with your soldering iron and solder. Once complete, flip the board over.

Cut the M headers to the proper length for the peripheral area. There will be 4 rows, with 5 pins, 5 pins, 5 pins, and 8 pins.

Insert them into the J22, J23, J24, J25 header locations.

Cut the M headers to the proper length for the peripheral area. There will be 8 rows, with 5 pins, 6 pins, 6 pins, 7 pins, 7 pins, 7 pins, 8 pins, 5 pins.

Insert them into the J14, J15, J16, J17, J18, J19, J20, J21 header locations.
