Daughterboard for Peggy 2

edited December 2013 in LED Matrix Kits
I've been looking around for the best solution to add a daughterboard to address a couple of things (mainly prototyping space along with the need for both serial and i2c) and found that the EMS proto boards may be my best bet.  The pros being they make short work of adding a 2nd 328 and give me a little more room to expand, the con is that they are just short (literally) of being a perfect fit.  Two mounting holes on one side of the board align perfectly with the holes in the Peggy battery box area so I could mount it with two spacers securely fastened to the board and two 'floating' to stabilize it.  If there were a larger proto board lined up with the outer 4 holes of the battery box area, using the extra board area for more prototyping space that would be perfect.  An idea for a future Peggy revision: why not add additional prototyping space within the battery box area for those not using the battery box?  For those using the battery box, it would just be covered up.

I just wanted to pass this idea along and see if anyone else had suggestions for adding a daughterboard to the Peggy...
