Yep, DIN41612 seems like a good choice.   I agree the DDR DIMM sockets
impose too many restrictions for the type of use we intend to put them
to for the Xylo stuff (physical insert/remove cycles and 1.27mm board
thickness limitations).

The Flex 10K10 FPGA system I mentioned previously, had the FPGA etc. on a half-size Eurocard (100 mm x 80 mm) with a right-angle 64-way DIN41612 connector, so that it could be plugged vertically into straight connectors on a motherboard, or whatever. The FPGA board was 4-layer, and the boards I attached to it (with things like displays and switches, or a VGA interface, were either simple home-made PCBs or Eurocard prototyping boards. I'll post a photo, when I find it.
