'[EE] Small Board Connectors'
Well, you can really tell when I'm trying to squeeze in a quick
project eh? Sorry for the extra traffic!

I'm trying to make a project...small. That means the Molex .1" headers
that I normally use for just about everything are just too large. I'd
like to switch to something surface mount, and with a smaller pitch
(as connectors seem to be a part that for a given connection pitch,
take up more board real estate when switched to SMT). I've been eying
a couple of of other Molex products, namely this style:
which is part of the PicoBlade series.
Also this one from the PicoSPOX series:
My applications are low volume, so a few cents here or there isn't a
huge deal. I do have to assemble the units by hand (reflow soldering
though), which means I'll need to assembly the cable ends by hand as

contacts that live within it. Height is also an issue, so right angle
units are probably preferable. Digikey is my preferred vendor, so
availability there is a plus. I'd be looking for 2 pin, 4 pin, and 5
