I would also vote for a format that doesn't use 100% of the edge real estate for the backplane, there's hardly anywhere to put your own connectors.

What do you mean by "100% of the edge for the backplane" -- the double-row header socket at the right edge? But if so, isn't that part of the standard Mega format -- and thus all corresponding shields, for those who want to use them?


What I'm saying is that there's no room left for connectors on my shield should I want to make one. For example maybe I want to make a shield with 4 or 8 serial ports all using DB(DE)-9 sockets. Where do I put them?

Granted that's hypothetical and nobody else is complaining :)

With the Due you can put them at the USB connector end now that they have switched to uUSB  :P


now that they have switched to uUSB

At last. Yes you now have about 15% of the edge to use.

Use SMD pin headers on the side of the shield facing the Arduino board and use SMD DB9 sockets on the other side. E.g. Harting makes SMD DB9 headers.
