Yes, the 14-pin I2C is not a too lucky choice.
- I had to replace the previous 10 pin connector, when somebody plugged
the 10pin RS232 into the 10pin I2C
and blew the BeagleBone with 9Volt signals. That shouldn't happen
- at that time, already 10pin-RL02 panels where delivered and PCBs were
made, so these couldn't be changed accordingly.
Thats why we have now the request to squeeze a 10pin flat cable into the
middle of a 14 pin header.
Seemed the lesser of two evils to me.
