For example:
The Breakaway options are able to Snap “break” apart to make smaller positions.
Digi-Key does have these available in the smaller positions for order.
S1011EC-40-ND is a 40 position that is the Full strip from the manufacturer. This can be bought and broke down into smaller positions at the customers leisure.

The Cuttable options are a little different from the Breakaway style because they do require a Cutting tool to cut them down to smaller positions. Digi-Key does cut these down into smaller positions to order.
SAM10514-ND is a dual row 40 position header from the Manufacturer. This can be bought and Cut down into smaller positions at the customers leisure.
