TC2030-CTX-NL 6-Pin "No Legs" Cable with 10-pin micro-connector for Cortex processors
Now Availlable! 6-Pin "No Legs" TC2030 Plug-of-NailsTM Cable for use with ARM Cortex processors.
This special cable has a 6-pin TC2030-NL Tag-Connector and a 10-pin ribbon connector that mates with the FTSH-105 style micro-headers used for Cortex Debug as found in debuggers such as Keil's ULINK-2.
The footprint for the TC2030-CTX-NL Plug-of-Nailstm Connector saves over 66% of the PCB space used by typical FTSH-105 style micro-headers!
Please refer to the TC2030-IDC-NL Datasheet for details of the TC2030-NL footprint.
You may also want to purchase a couple of TC2030-CLIP boards which will hold this cable in place for hands-free programming and debugging.
See also the TC2030-CTL "Legged" version of the cable.
For traditional ARM JTAG solutions using the 20-pin header as found on Segger's J-LINK see our TC2050-ARM2010 adapter used with TC2050-IDC (-NL) cables.
WARNING for ATMEL-ICE users: Astoundingly the new Atmel-ICE has it's SWD header pin numbering reversed. To use our cable with their backwards header you'll either need to cut off the ribbon connector locating lug and plug it in reversed, or connect a new ribbon header onto our cable backwards. If you plug in a standard (correct) Cortex cable you're going to short power and stuff out.
Keil's ULINK2 debugger and Tag-Connect Demo PCB and additional Legged Cable are shown for illustrative use only - not included with the cable!
