Hey everyone,

Im Jason and new here and a passerby who likes to dabble in different things and see how much I can figure out on the go is starting his own project (with basically no knowledge of how to make PCB boards).

Im working on a project right now to challenge myself and what I can do. My first speedbump is I want to more the game cart port to a seperate board, running wires from the old location to a new location . Seen below:

This is the PCB board idea I came up with ( Using a Connector Ribbon hdr, 30 pin {3M 2530-6002UB, DigitkeyMHB30K ). Running tracers to another 30 pin that i can hook up a cable to and run that to the original board. I could solder the wires directly but this would I think be a more durable connection. (pins into holes than soldering to pins directly. )

The problem im running into is designing the board. I downloaded a program and made my own small board with a 30 pin connector so that i can solder the port to the new board and connect up the wires and such. My issue is are the holes spaced out properly and also will running the wires to the port ( with the pin holes punched out remembering I know nothing about this kind of thing) be enough or do i need to also run any circuitry on the new board along with the new location for the cartridge port.
