    Re: Stacking MXP Connectors

    I haven't seen a single connector that would do that. You can get SMT male and female connectors that you could put on top and bottom of the board.

    Stacking MXP Connectors

    Has anyone come across a good method for "stacking" MXP boards (similar to the way Arduino shields can be stacked)?

    I'm thinking if there was a connector with a 2x17 female MXP connector one the Roborio (downward-facing) side, which also had long enough pins (and perhaps even a housing) on the other ("top") side - and it projected up through the top of an MXP board, then multiple MXP boards could be mounted on a single RoboRio. This would allow someone developing an MXP board w/sensors on it to be able to use another MXP board at the same time (for instance, a MXP board w/digital I/O breakouts). Unfortunately, I haven't come across such a connector.

    Thanks for any input you may have on this,
