I have a prototype board like this:
I have a breakout board like this:
I would like to solder the breakout board directly on top of the prototype board without using headers, so that I can reduce the height of my prototype.
- I am aware of edge castellation, but would prefer to explore an explore an alternative as I do not have access to anything besides the protoboard, breakout board, soldering iron and solder .
- I would like to avoid using headers to keep the height of my prototype small.
Is it naive to think that I can just put solder or wire in the holes of both the Protoboard and breakout board, and get them to sit ? I can probably add some glue also to hold the boards together. Is this a bad idea ?
I do not expect much mechanical stress, as I will secure the prototype board to the case.
Any suggestion ? As I am just hacking a prototype together for demonstration purposes I do not want to go through the trouble of placing all the individual components of the breakout board on the protoboard.
EDIT: I'm trying to keep the footprint as small as possible so do not want to place the boards side by side. I would like to place them one on top of the other and minimize the height as well.
