I am designing a new board for evaluating a particular processor. As i am bringing out the i/o pins i am torn between using SIL (single in line) or DIL (Dual in line) pins for the user to gain access to.
Seems like there are 2 camps out there. You have the stuff like the Arduino which sticks with SIL.
Yet you have things like the Hydra which uses the DIL.
Personally i like the DIL, takes up less room and you can make the board smaller. But i see people gripe when they dont have SIL.
So I would like to know from you guys, if you were to buy a kit for evaluating something what type of I/O connector would you prefer to have on it ?
