I guess I would need to make the tracks across the board which join
the edges larger than normal if somebody wanted to make a very large
array of them and hoped to pass all signals and voltages through
every edge connector ?
What would be the best track size here ? ' As large as can be made to
fit in the space allowed ' I suppose ?
