    (I did a cursory search and didn’t find anyone else asking about this, apologies if I missed something.)

    Is there a maximum length for the ribbon cables that connect the LCD / SD card to the Mini RAMBo card? I would think the SD data transmission would become unreliable after a certain length. I’m thinking about mounting my RAMBo under the table and drilling a hole for the cables so that the LCD can rest in the lower left corner under the conduit while I’m not using it.

     

    thanks,

    Adam

    This kit gives you 2′ I think, but I don’t think you’d have problems with 4′:

    It’s all pretty low speed digital (relatively low to the stuff that really gets fickle).

    That’s probably more than enough. Thanks!
