Thinking this must be out there some where
but can’t find it.
have an Arduino Mega,
want to connect it to four other boards,
which if I stack the shields on top of each other makes an interesting / unreliable stack.
Is there a shield, is there any call for a shield,
that has a pile of say 16 way IDC connectors on it,
and every IO pin on the arduino connects to a / or more than one IDC cable.
The sort of thing I was thinking of was on the lines of say each cable
has Vin, +5 and 2 Gnd on it, 8 digital IO pins, 4 analog in or out pins,
that way there is only one shield stacked on the Arduino Mega,
and reliable ribbion cables comming off it,
to ‘standard’ boards, with the other end of the ribbion cable on.
any thoughts ?
please tell us there is an IDC shield out there some where,
I can see one that take 4 or 6 pin sockets, for sencors I think,
