You might want to search the archives...I think something similar was discussed quite some time ago.

The general consensus seemed to be extending the bus over such an contraption would lead to various EMI and other issues.

Hello all!

Is if feasible to link, say the AudioStix II, WifiStix etc. into a
Gumstix Connext 400 (or whatever) using ribbon cables rather than direct
physical connection - plugging the module(s) into each other or the
motherboard?

I'm considering how flexible we can be in positioning the motherboard
and associated modules in our prototype's casing.

Thanks,

Stev
