Dear Community, I have to apologize if this is not the right section for this question, but I didn't know which topic would be the right one. My Task is the following. I have a Raspberry Pi and want to connect the GPIO Pins of the Raspberry with a connector of a Laser (for RS232 communication). But the connector of the laser is much smaller. In the documentation of the laser the connector is listed as: "User’s connector on transponder board: Samtec P/N CLM-107-02-H-D-K-TR or equivalent. This connector is equivalent to CLM 107-2-X-D with additional plating for GR1217 metallurgical compliance." What I am looking for is some intermediate connector/adapter to somehow allow me to use wires (like this: https://www.amazon.de/Breadboard-Steckbr%C3%BCcken-Drahtbr%C3%BCcken-Stecker-Jumper/dp/B00IRYUU8S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1473337019&sr=8-1&keywords=male+jumper+wire) to connect the Raspberry with the Laser. But wires of this size won't fit into the small connector. At my local electronics store (Conrad) they didn't have a connector small enough to fit. I don't know the right terms to look for such a part, so I hope someone could help me or at least tell me the name of the part I might be looking for. Thanks! David
Why don´t you use a soldering iron and make your own adaptor?

A practical approach is to make a cable with a connector for Pi I/O at one end (female, not male!!) and a samtec connector at the other end.

Have a look at Samtecs parametric search and apply for "Mating Connector" and search for Your connector type. With the mating connector it should be easily possible to construct a matching adapter to whatever You like... German Sprichwort: "Adapter wachsen nicht an Bäumen."
