 +mcmaster goal: come up with a standard connector to put on BBB cape
 +
 +Goals:
 +  * Requirement:​ fit 6 connectors on reasonable size BBB cape
 +  * Use an existing standard
 +  * COTS cables, or at least easily ​
 +  * Shielded
 +  * Durable
 +
 +Main candidates:
 +  * DB9
 +    * Durable connector
 +    * COTS super available
 +    * Shielded
 +    * Breakout boards readily available
 +    * No insustry standard pinout
 +      * I thought Gecko, but that's actually for the motors
 +  * DB25
 +    * Industry standard connector
 +      * Single and multi versions
 +    * However, too large
 +  * Combicon style connector
 +    * Quick to make
 +    * Can use shielded cables
 +    * Can't buy whole cable, or at least will be expensive
 +    * Wires can stress and fall off
 +    * Used on Gecko and some others, although not consistently
