Challenges with Real World Prototyping
#1
The Au and Cu are beautiful boards, but they are too tight for prototyping.  Here are a few new parts we need in the store to support REAL world applications of the Alchitry products.

1. Ribbon cables to connect the male/female IO headers (so that the Au and Br boards can be separated)
2. Standoff's allowing the boards can be separated (so components on the Br board to not short to the Au board)
3. A 1-bank (A, B, C, D) protoboard with the remaining space for electrically connected through (holes for building circuits)
4. A 2-bank (A+B, C+D, A+C, B+D) protoboard with the remaining space for electrically connected through (holes for building circuits)
5. A regular protoboard

In the photo below, you see that I am trying to connect a Raspberry Pi Zero W and two CAN Transcievers to the Au FPGA.  The second CAN Transciever had to be cut off since it hit the USB connector on the AU board and would create an electrical short.  This is why I need the ribbon cables and the standoffs.  

NOTE1: I will have to scrap the Br board and build a new one with the CAN Transcievers better placed.  
NOTE2: The mounting holes on the Au and Br boards do not align with the RPi mounting holes, so I had to expand one of the Br board holes with a file.
