I've asked a question related to this before but haven't received a response.  I have a verdex-xm4 with robostix and netwifimicrosd.  I want to add USB and RS232 interfaces to connect various peripheral devices but am unable to add a fourth board easily to the existing stack.  I am thinking I might be able to get a ribbon style connector with 60-pin hirose connectors attached along the length of the ribbon and at each end.  The connectors would be similar to those at the gumstix store (http://gumstix.com/store/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=28&products_id=93) but not board terminating. One end of the ribbon will plug into the verdex-xm4 and the robostix and console-vx will be connected to additional 60-pin connectors along the length of the ribbon.  Has anyone attempted this approach?  Will this approach work or is the 60-pin connector on the verdex limited to only one expansion board?  Thoughts, ideas?  I could make my own custom buddy board similar to the tweener but I really don't have the time for that. 
 
Thanks,
