1157 module 6.35mm jack

Hi,

Having trouble getting a 6.35mm jack from rapid electronics. Would this be a suitable replacement for that part from mouser?

ACJM-MIVS-2S Amphenol Audio

Thanks!

Should work. The footprint is for a stereo jack with 5 terminals but the sleeve and sleeve normal terminals aren’t used (and the tip normal might not be used, I’d have to check). So there’d be two holes with nothing in them but no problem.

The stereo version is here:

There are cheaper versions available, I always use these from Tayda

or you can find similar on AliExpress etc.

Thanks for the quick response :smiling_face:

Hi,

One more question. If I am building this for use in 110 US voltage, does that change any parts that I need to buy?

Thanks!

Will

That only affects your power supply. Either way the module sees only ±12 VDC.

Hi Rich,

I really appreciate your help!

is there a list of equivalent parts for the 1157 module that i could order from Mouser or Tayda? I’m having trouble finding the exact part anywhere else other than Rapid electronics and the prices are quite high there. Not to mention the import costs. I am not well educated enough to be confident that i am ordering the right part.

I hate to ask you to make one up. I hope it is not too difficult.

Thanks,

Will

My suggestion: Attempt to do it.

It’s not easy. Mouser is especially difficult sometimes, its search facility sometimes gives you great power to zoom in on what you need and frequently just sends you down dead ends. Digi-Key similarly, though sometimes does better and sometimes worse. Tayda generally has lower prices so I usually start there. The search there is primitive and easy, type a part number or keyword in and if it finds it, it finds it. Sometimes Google with “site:tayda.com” is helpful. Tayda doesn’t have Mouser’s and Digi-Key’s selection, though; sometimes you need to split orders to get everything you need (and then you spend more in postage but you may make it up in prices).

Compare against the Rapid listings you already have links for to narrow down possibilities. Look at datasheets; they tend to be very confusing at first but eventually you’ll find they’re very confusing, but most of the answers are in there somewhere. I save them on my computer to refer to later again and again.

The switches (one of them in particular) for that module evidently are troublesome, there’s discussion of that at the beginning of this topic: 1157 MINI ADSR Module

Then post your list here and we’ll take a look. I’m sure we’ll find some things that need changing. But by the time you get to the bottom of the list you’ll have learned a lot about sourcing parts.

I tend to find most things on ebay TBH, the 6.35’s I actualy buy from ali express.

Hi,

I guess I will have to wait on verifying if the components I selected from Mouser and Tayda were correct.

I guess while I wait to become an older member so I can post multiple links I would like to ask for a link to buy the correct PCB connects as the ebay link on the BOM sheet has expired.

Thanks,

Will

Oh hey I’d forgotten about this topic:

That should answer a lot of the above questions.

Not clear to me what you mean by PCB connects. The module has only one PCB. Do you mean the Molex connectors? See end of this post 1157 Mini ADSR BOM

The PCB connects mentioned in the 1158 BOM are 2.54 mm pin headers and sockets. Tayda has a 10 pin socket here 10 Pin 2.54 mm Single Row Female Pin Header . They don’t list 10 pin headers — 9 and 11 pins, oddly enough, but not 10 — but you can buy a longer one like this 40 pin header 40 Pin Male 2.54mm Single Row Pin Header Break away Round Pin Gold Plated and just break off whatever length you need. You also can get a 40 pin socket 40 Pin 2.54 mm Single Row Female Pin Header and cut off whatever length you need — I pull out one pin and then use the cutters on my wire strippers to cut the plastic housing at that point.

OK. Thanks again for your help. Hope to start building soon!
