 A m0dul can be connected to the r0ket via the m0dulbus. The connectors are in 2.54mm/​100mil spacing, prepopulated with female sockets. If available, a __stackthrough connector__ should be used to interface with the m0dulbus. The hackerbus is intended for tinkering, a m0dul should use the __m0dulbus only__. A m0dul can be connected to the r0ket via the m0dulbus.

-The //m0dul A// and //m0dul B// connectors are rotated 180 degrees to each other. If your m0dul is symmetric ​and has no orientation requirements,​ it can be plugged both ways. Keep in mind though that the chip select pins on //A// and //B// differ (that should be configurable via defines in your software).+<note tip>​Stackthrough connectors kits (2x 2x06) will be on sale at the campsite!</​note>​
