TC2050-IDC-NL 10-Pin No-Legs Cable with Ribbon connector.

Tag-Connect’s TC2050-IDC-NL “No Legs” Plug-of-Nails™ cable is a 10-conductor cable fitted with a spring-pin Tag-Connector that conveniently plugs directly into your PCB and terminates in a 0.1” ribbon connector.


Plugs straight to your PCB - No mating connector or header required!

Requires only a tiny 0.03” footprint of pads and locating holes in your PCB.

Zero Cost Per Board!

Tiny Footprint!

High-Reliability Spring-Pins make a Secure Connection and are rated for over 100,000 operations

Footprint has no height and can reduce the size and space requirements of your PCB.

A great way to make test and debug signals available at no cost and with minimal board space.

Can be retained in place using a TC2050-CLIP board.

Tag-Connect cables provide a simple, reliable means of connecting Debuggers and Programmers or other test equipment to your PCB’s while lowering board costs and facilitating efficient production programming.

Tag-Connect uses a specially designed (Patent Pending) connector which eliminates the need for putting a programming header or other mating connector on every PCB. Instead, Tag-Connect uses tried and tested spring-pins rated for over 100,000 operations to make a secure connection to a special footprint pattern of pads and locating holes in your PCB.

The tiny “No Legs” footprint takes only 0.03 square inches (about the same board space as a couple of SMT resistors) which means you can locate the footprint right next to the MCU if desired.

This 10-conductor cable has a TC2050-NL Tag-Connector on one end and a standard 0.1” ribbon connector on the other and is suitable for use with most many MCU’s / FPGA’s and JTAG programming and debug operations.

A growing range of adaptors are available for specific and generic applications such as Xilinx SPARTAN and VERTEX FPGA’s, TI MSP430 (TC2050-IDC-430), etc
