Introducing the New Standard in Cables for In-Circuit Programming.... In-Circuit Programming Cables that Save Cost and Space on Every Board!


The Benefits of Tag Connect

ZERO Cost per Board!

No mating connector required on PCB!

Tiny footprint!

High Reliability Pogo Spring Pins for Secure Connection!

Rugged Design for Highly Repetitive Use!

Designed so it can only be inserted the correct way round!

Two versions both designed to cut your costs, save you time, and save space on your PCBs!

TC2030-PKT-NL 6-Pin No-Legs Cable for Microchip PICkit 3

Tag-Connect TC2030-PKT-NL is primarily intended for use in production programming. It is particularly suited to environments where the connection to the PCB is of short duration, and operators are working quickly from board to board.

A major advantage of the TC2030-PKT-NL is the extremely small footprint required on the PCB (hardly any bigger than a surface mount resistor) allowing the minimum possible space on your PCB to be used for the programming connection.

The TC2030-PKT-NL (no legs) cable is also compatible with the TC2030 legged footprint allowing use of the TC2030-PKT legged cable for development work and TC2030-PKT-NL for fast programming in production.

The TC2030-PKT-NL is also suited to use for debugging and development when secured into position using a TC2030-CLIP board. See 'Using the TC2030-MCP-NL for debugging' on the User Information page for details.

Where a sustained connection to the PCB is required, also consider the TC2030-PKT.

Ideal for efficient production programming and also for debugging.

See us at ARM Techcon, Santa Clara Oct 1st-2nd and at Electronica, Munich Nov 11-14th

We're excited to once more be part of ARM Techcon in Santa Clara on Oct 1st & 2nd. Visit us at Booth 222.

We're also incredibly excited to meet Tag-Connect users from the world over at Electronica 2014 in Munich, Germany Nov 11th-14th. We're in Hall A6 Stand 466 (between Distrelec and Digi-Key).

Please come and say hello!

Erroneous End-of-Life memo sent by distributor - TC2050-IDC is a current (and very popular) product!

Unfortunately an administrative mistake made by one of our distributors has caused many TC2050-IDC users to receive an "End of Life" notice. Please rest assured that TC2050-IDC is not end of life, is and will be in stock, and is one of our most popular products! Tag-Connect sales are growing faster than ever and we are bringing out new products, not ending old ones!

TC2050-IDC is used by thousands of customers and is one of our top selling cables. The distributor that sent the End of Life notice should be sending a correction. We appologize for any inconvenience and distress this may have caused.

All Tag-Connect products are now "Made in USA"...

Following increasing headaches, frustrations and difficulties with overseas manufcaturing, all Tag-Connect products now and going forward are being made here in USA!. (Naturally, several of the parts we use are manufactured elsewhere).

Not only does manufacturing in house ensure the highest quality, it also allows us more flexibility in being able to offer non-standard products in a faster timeframe. Need a 100-ft TC2050-IDC cable tomorrow? No problem!

Thanks to all of our customers who have helped to make Tag-Connect's Plug-of-Nails(tm) Cables a new standard across the industry!

Visit Tag-Connect at Sensors Expo, Chicago - Wed June 25th and Thurs June 26th, Booth 1103.

Hope to see you there!

Visit us at Embedded World, Nuremberg, Feb 25th-27th

We're excited to once again be exhibiting at Embedded World. With over 900 exhibitors and 22,000 visitors, it's truly the World's premier Embedded Systems show. Tag-Connect is in Hall 4A booth 513, close to DigiKey. Hope to see you there!

ARM TechCon Expo - October 30th and 31st

We're at ARM TechCon again this year - see us in booth 523. The exhibits part of ARM Techcon is free! Several people we checked with in the past wanted to attend Design West and ARM TechCon but didn't because they believed they had to pay for the conference, not realizing that the EXPO is free admission - you don't have to pay $599 or more to get in! See you there! Arm TechCon 2013 Expo date and hours are October 30th 10 to 4:30pm and October 31st 10 to 4pm.

Tag-Connect is moving!

Despite our very tiny footprints, we've outgrown our offices and are currently moving into a beautiful new space in Burlingame, California (close to San Francisco Airport and on the edge of Silicon Valley). Our new address is Tag-Connect, 433 Airport Blvd, Suite 425, Burlingame, CA 94010, USA.
