I am looking to have my arduino & beagleboard-powered 'brain' break out all pins and ethernet/usb connectors through one port on the outside of my enclosure (something like a chinese knock off of a harting DD series connector).
Question is, are there any problems with connecting shielded USB and Ethernet data cables via terminals (e.g. if using a DB25 in place of RJ45s, or USB connectors)? If My cables are shielded and grounded, can I use any connector with sufficient pin gauge?
I know his should be answered on the interweb somewhere, but can't find it...
