BBB without solder headers? Or with pin through stacking headers

Is it possible to purchase a BBB without the P8/P9 headers soldered in?

I’d like to have a BBB with stacking headers so that I could plug the BBB into headers on a board I’m prototyping. That is the BBB would look the same from the top with P8 and P9 available for a cape or wires… AND have pins sticking through the bottom to plug into a board below. With the normal BBB top up and the protruding pins in my prototype board. Or perhaps someone sells BBBs in my desired configuration?

Nope…

do what i did design the board to have the beagle be upside down on your
board
creating another BBB without headers is another headache for gerald

Sad Beagle is sad.

I wonder how often this is requested? I don’t think I’ll try de-soldering them. I thought about the upside down but would like the receptacles for other wire poking and revisions or maybe another cape…

Might make a cape just to attach a ribbon cable. Maybe a ribbon cable cape exists?

Every now and then. then again no one wants to pay the $100 to get just one built by hand and tested by hand.

Why don't you just get a breakout cape:

...then you can poke around on both sides of the BBB *AND* the cape.

Interesting board.

Here’s a youtube of the BeagleBone breakout cape for those interested.
