 How do I calculate the number of ground and power
 pins I need in a board-to-board connector.

 The number of grounds is a function of switching
 current and how many signals will switch at the same
 time, correct ?

 More grounds is always better but what about power pins ??

 If one or two pins are sufficient to carry the max steady
 state current and my board is well bypassed with bulk and
 ceramic caps, is there a need for alot more power pins ?
