What else needs to be done, I assume enabling 2nd ASUART (is that supposed to be UART?). I have done this but the Pi Zero W does not see the Port.

Does the length of the pins that I install matter? I cannot find any 18mm long GPIO pins.

@TJ: The pins should be longer in order to allow them to go to the header. I got mine (I hope the link works) at http://a.co/0ZX5ZbQ

Can the Einsy Board power and connect a Raspberry Pi3 using the connector meant for the Pi Zero. I'd like to connect the Rpi3 with a wire harness.
