Well, this is basically a normal 2 x 20 ways straight female header (2.54mm pitch to pitch), but with the popularity of Raspberry Pi, this female header becomes needed for the HAT (Hardware Attached on Top).
Connect your own PCB to a Raspberry Pi B+ with this normal-height female header. The female header part is about 8.5mm tall, good for small HATs that do not conflict with the USB/Ethernet jacks. This header has 3mm of pins, compared with our stacking version which have slightly higher base height and has 10mm header pins instead. With 3mm you don't have to cut the really long pins, so its ideal for basic Pi HAT design that does not need the GPIO to be extended out for another layer of HAT.
Note: Can be used on HAT for the Raspberry Pi Model A+, Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi 3 too!
