Maybe the currents should be a little higher on each supply since it
will come from an external supply and we are not doing the regulation
on the motherboard... we just need to make sure the traces are sized
right. I think each DIN connector can handle up to an amp or so...

At least, maybe we can come up with a way to plug motherboards
together to extend it in groups of 4 or something? Two right angle
DIN (plug & receptacle) connectors could handle that.

IO Interface... AD9954 board... PLL board... etc... etc... LOL
