Tag-Connect Cables

TC2030-ICESPI Legged Cable for use with Atmel-ICE

The TC2030-ICESPI cable is a special cable for use with Atmel-ICE AVR that has a 6-pin TC2030 Legged Tag-Connector at one end and a 10-pin 0.05" (1.27mm) pitch female IDC ribbon connector at the other. The 10-pin IDC can be plugged directly into Atmel-ICE providing 6-pin SPI, TPI, PDI, aWire and debugWIRE connections similar to the (now obsolete) Atmel AVR JTAGICE MkII.

Note: The 10-pin male connectors on the Atmel-ICE have reversed (non-standard) pin numbering. For Atmel-ICE you should purchase the LEMTA version of our cables which have the 10-pin ribbon connector fitted backwards which corrects for the Atmel-ICE pin numbering reversal. (Atmel ICE comes suppplied with a ribbon cable fitted with two 10-pin IDC connectors and a 6-pin single-in-line SIP connector - The 10-pin connector at the Atmel ICE end is reversed but the other is not, correcting the pin-numbering at the target PCB. Our LEMTA cables similarly have a reversed connector).

Note also that Atmel-ICE outputs the PDI and aWIRE DATA on a different pin to JTAGAVR MKII

The TC2030-ALT cable is a special cable that has a TC2030 Tag-Connector at one end and a 10-pin 0.1" pitch female IDC connector at the other. The 10-pin IDC can be plugged directly into some Altera USB Blasters and ByteBlasters.

The cable is wired as follows:

TC2030 10-pin 0.1" IDC
TC2030-ALT Connections
1 4     Vref
2 5     TMS
3 9     TDI
4 1     TCLK
5 2,10  GND
6 3     TDO

Please refer to the TC2030-IDC datasheet for details of the TC2030 connector and footprint.

Usually in stock in low quantities, but please contact us to check if your need is urgent.

TC2070-IDC

14-pin Plug-of-Nails™ Cable - With Legs Version

Fitted with 14-pin (2x7) 0.1" spaced ribbon cable connector.

Approx 8" of ribbon cable between connectors.

For full specifications, please download the TC2070-IDC Datasheet (pdf)

See also TC2070-IDC-NL (no-legs) version.

Note that for many applications where 14-pin connectors are natively used by a debugger (such as MSP430, TI and ADI DSP's, Renesas MCU's etc) we offer some excellent alternative solutions that in many cases can reduce the footprint size on your PCB to 6 or 10-pins as well as reducing the price per cable.

TC2050-IDC-NL-050-ALL

The TC2050-IDC-NL-050-ALL has an 0.050" pitch ribbon connector suitable for programmers and debuggers that use the Samtec FTSH-105-01 style micro-header (10-pins).

The pin connections are 1-1 and all 10 pins are connected. (The standard TC2050-IDC-NL-050 cable does not have pins 5&9 connected to be similar to our TC2050-ARM2010 adapter and may be what you need for ARM applications).

Please refer to TC2050-IDC-NL datasheet for the PCB footprint information.

TC2050-IDC-050-ALL

The TC2050-IDC-050-ALL has an 0.050" pitch ribbon connector suitable for ULINK2 and similar debuggers that use the Samtec FTSH-105-01 style micro-header.

The pin connections are 1-1 and all 10 pins are connected. (The standard TC2050-IDC-050 cable does not have pins 5&9 connected to be similar to our TC2050-ARM2010 adapter).

TC2050-IDC-NL-050

The TC2050-IDC-NL-050 has a 0.050" pitch ribbon connector suitable for ULINK2 and similar debuggers that use the Samtec FTSH-105-01 style micro-header.

This cable is the equivalent to using our TC2050-ARM2010 adapter with a TC2050-IDC-NL cable connected to the ULINK2's 20-pin 0.1" pitch traditional ARM JTAG header.

The pin connections are 1-1. Pins 5 and 9 of the TC2050 are not connected. If you need all 10 pins connected please see TC2050-IDC-NL-050-ALL Cables can be made with different connection combinations by special order (request in the Order Comments at checkout and allow an extra 2-7 working days for your order to ship).

We generally recommend choosing the TC2050-IDC-NL or TC2030-IDC-NL cables over the TC2030-CTX-NL or this TC2050-IDC-NL-050 because cables mating to the Cortex 10-pin 0.050" header use very fine 0.025" pitch ribbon cable with very few strands of tinned copper wire in each wire of the ribbon. These fine strands can break over time through flexing and stressing. The thicker ribbon cables used with our TC2050-IDC-NL or TC2030-IDC-NL cables have many times the cross-sectional area of copper and make for a far more robust solution.

This cable may be made to order - please email us to check stock if your need is urgent. Often we can make and ship a custom cable within a couple of working days.
