Retro Board stack configuration

    I had the stacking headers custom designed to maximize those signals that can be stacked. The issue with the other connectors we didn't stack, is you want a secure connection on them for the buttons and generally, straight pins aren't a great locking connector; plus they are the odd 2.0mm size and its difficult to find good housings that plug into 2.0mm pitch pins that dont have a locking system. 

     

    I recommend using JST pin headers and crimping jumper wires between them if you want to stack them.

    Ah, thanks for the information. I have another question regarding the height of the standoffs to use giving the proper clearance between both boards?

    Thanks!
