Wires for LIS3DH

Get the wires ready for the LIS3DH breakout board. Use the following wire lengths.

  • 4-pin JST cable – 116m
  • 4-wire ribbon cable - 250mm

Tin Ribbon Cable Wires

Use wire strippers to remove insulation from the tips of each wire. Tin the exposed wire using a bit of solder. 

Tin 4-pin JST Cable

Use wire strippers to remove insulation from the tips of each wire in the 4-wire JST cable. Tin the strands of wire by adding a bit of solder.
