Extenders

Hey, this is gonna sound really stupid to you all I am sure, but, can you stack two extenders on each other? like say I have a double wide, and I put a double tall on top of it, this wouldn't work would it?

A bit more info needed.

What is an "extender", and what is being extended?

Sure, you can stack them any which way you want, along with all the parasitic capacitance/inductance/resistance and cross-talk to go with it. It depends on what you stack. This doesn't create new pins so various devices won't necessarily work together just because you have the extenders, you'll have to recompile the code to available I/O lines which are dependent upon the hardware the code uses as well.

For very low speed devices (relative to system clock speed) you won't have issues generally, as the frequency of whatever signal is passed on a particular line goes the complexities increase really fast.

Alrighty, thanks for the answer, I just ask because they don't make the correct shapes for what I am trying to do, although it is more of a looks-thing rather than need.

You'll probably be fine, but as a general rule it doesn't matter how good it looks if it doesn't work.
