So I am revising my Phi-1 shield design to make it compatible with the official Ethernet shield. Problem is, I don't have the shield. I don't see myself having enough money and using that shield. I want to know how tall the Ethernet jack is. Could someone measure it in mm or inch for me? Thanks.

From pics I can find, I sense that it is taller than the female headers, which is my concern. I can work out the lateral dimensions from the design files but not the height. Thank you!

djc,

Thank you! I was thinking too much about having an actual ethernet shield and measuring with a ruler. I didn't think along the line you pointed out. So the entire thing is 15.12mm tall!

Just did a measure, 15.12mm seems pretty major. Did anyone stack any shields above the official ethernet shield? What's your experience? Do I have to use stacking headers?
