 Main Boards

These boards are normally Single Board Computers(SBC). They can have connectors for Daughter and Frontend boards. The Daughter board fits on top of the main board via 2 rows of 2x12 2.54mm connectors. The Frontend boards fits on to the front of the main board via 2 board edge connectors. For further details see sections below on Daughter and Frontend Boards.

 Frontend Boards
Frontend boards can be connected to Main (SBC) boards to add additional functionality. They have 2mm pin headers soldered horizontally onto them. They connect with the card edge connector on the Main board. There are a couple of ways to connect the Frontend board to the Main board:

-- Solderless --
Seeing that the Main board is 1.6mm thick, and the distance between the rows of the 2mm connector is 1.5mm, the connector fits tightly when mated. This connection method should only be used for prototyping, and is NOT a permanent connection!
-- Soldered --
To connect the two boards together permanently, the pins can be soldered onto the card edge connector of the Main board (In the same way as they are soldered onto the Frontend board).
-- Socketed --
A socket can be soldered onto the card edge connector of the Main Board, into which the pins of the Frontend board fits.

All new Frontend Boards have areas cut out on the board for the connector to fit into. By doing this there is no gap between the Main and Frontend board when mated! The image shows a Main (top green board) and Frontend (bottom beige board) plugged together.

 Daughter Boards

These boards have 2 rows of 2x12 2.54mm pin headers that fit into the female headers on the main board. The Standard size Main board normally has connectors for a Standard and Compact Daughter board. The Compact Main board only has a connector for a Compact Daughter board.
