Tag-Connect Cables

TC2030-MCP-NL 6-Pin No-Legs Cable with RJ12 Modular Plug (for Microchip ICD)

Tag-Connect TC2030-MCP-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-MCP-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-MCP-NL is also compatible with the TC2030-MCP footprint allowing use of the TC2030-MCP for development work and TC2030-MCP-NL for fast programming in production.

The TC2030-MCP-NL can be held in place making it suitable for debugging and development when using TC2030-CLIP board .

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

Ideal for efficient production programming and also for debugging.

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

Also available in self-retaining “legged” version (TC2050-IDC). See TC2050-IDC

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 patented specially designed 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 legged version footprint takes about the same board space as two or three SMT resistors which means you can locate the footprint right next to the MCU if desired.

This 10-conductor cable has a TC2050 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 adaptor cables are available for use with various applications, such as ARM MCU's, Xilinx SPARTAN and VERTEX FPGA’s, TI MSP430 (TC2050-IDC-430) and Renesas MCU's compatible with E1/E8a debuggers.
