Embedded Systems Conference, Minnesota Nov 4th&5th. ARM Techcon, Santa Clara, CA Nov 11&12

Come meet us at ESC and ARM Techcon - we'd love to meet you! See our latest cables and solutions! Help save the World 10,000 connectors at a time!

FTDI USB to TC2030 Serial Cables, and Real-Time Current Monitor with USB covering 6 decades of current range.

Did you know we sell FTDI FT232 USB to Serial Cables fitted with TC2030 Plug-of-Nails TM Connectors?

These are ideal for factory calibration, configuration and calibration type uses, or anywhere you want an extra serial interface for debugging. Needing a PCB footprint about the size of an 0805 resistor, the No Legs versions are perfect for saving on a large physical serial debug/configuration connector.

See for more detail.

Also, we have some very handy DevTools such as the EE203 Real-Time Current Monitor which covers 6 decades of current measurement (from 1uA to 1A) and has a USB output. Fantastic for debugging and visually seeing the low power modes of your MCU (have you left an input floating or a clock running when it should be turned off). This device has been flying off the shelves - more stock expected today.

Check out our latest improved cables at Sensors Expo, Long Beach, CA!

Now that we've completed the move of all connector and cable assembly and overmolding to be fully in-house here in California with all plastic parts made locally in USA, we've been able to make some small but very significant improvements to our cables. Better strain-relief on the ribbon-cable versions means improved durability in the production environment and the much easier to squeeze legs on the legged versions make them easier to use.

If you're coming to Sensors Expo and Conference in Long Beach this week be sure to check out our new and improved cables at the Tag-Connect Booth #909

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!
