I assembled parts for a minimal Cardinal. The IMU had its data pins in the same order as the microcontroller, so I soldered header pins into the sockets and used the plastic barrier to keep the two boards separated. I thought I would have to put some Kapton tape between them for insulation, but that shouldn't be necessary.

There was a problem when I added the data header pins because the IMU board was blocking the holes. I was able to shift the plastic retainer and sneak the pins through one at a time. The final step was a vibrating motor, which I stuck to the bottom, where there were no components. I used IO pin nine because it supported PWM output and would no cross any wires.
