EC-10

Tag-Connect's Edge-Connect™ EC-10
10-pin Castellated Board-Edge Connector

The direct to the literal edge of the PCB Connector!

Tag-Connect Edge-Connect EC14 closeup with PCB

Edge-Connect™ - The Leading-Edge Connector!

Edge-Connect™ is the patent-pending newest member in the family of Connectors and Cables from Tag-Connect.

By connecting to the literal edge of the PCB (not the surface near the edge like traditional edge-connectors) Edge-Connect™ is designed to essentially eliminate the wasted real-estate needed by JTAG programming and test connectors.

Edge-Connect™ is an Ideal solution for space-sensitive PCB’s and modules that don’t have room on the board for traditional connectors but which still need a means of programming firmware and testing.

We've designed Edge-Connect™ so that we can offer low-cost, fast-turn, customized connector solutions to meet the unique requirements of your PCB - Contact Us if you have a custom requirement.

Shown below is the similar Tag-Connect Edge-Connect EC-14 14-pin cable with Castellated Edge Connector and attached target PCB.

Tag-Connect Castellated PCB Edge-Connect EC-14

  • Connects directly to the literal edge of the PCB
  • PCB snaps directly onto the Edge-Connect
  • Zero Component Cost on the PCB
  • Maximizes available PCB real-estate
  • Eliminates the cost of a connector on every board
  • Requires just one tiny locating hole
  • Low profile edge access ideal for use with stacked PCB’s with no access headroom
  • Cant be connected backwards due to keyed feature
  • Standard or custom design configurations available
  • Alternative pitch? Three castellated edges? No problem!
  • No Header! - No Brainer!

Instead of using the usual space-costly Surface Mount or Plated Through-Hole connectors, Edge-Connect™ has springy gold-plated contacts that connect directly to the literal edge of the target PCB using edge castellation.

A Castellated PCB edge is a board edge that has plated through holes that are placed overhanging the edge of the board and typically made at little to no extra cost even from most cheap proto-board fab services (often a check box in the online quote is marked "Castellated Holes").

Castellated edges are commonly used on RF, WiFi, BLE and IoT sensor modules making them suitable for soldering as an SMT component onto host PCB’s using the castellated holes as pins. Edge-Connect™ allows test and programming and even debugging without first soldering the module to the host PCB. This makes it very useful for factory test and programming of the module.

EC-10 has a castellation pitch of 1.27mm and requires a single tiny non-plated through hole to locate and hold the PCB in place.

NOTE: Even though shown as "In Stock" below, there is potentially a 1 week backlog on orders for EC-10. If you place an order now your card will be charged even though your EC-10 may not ship immediately.

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.
