Keil ULINK2 Cable Selection and Installation

Keil ULINK2 debugger with TC2030 Tag-Connect Plug-of-nails™

The Keil ULINK2 debug adapter connects your computer’s USB port to your target system and allows you to program and debug embedded programs on targeted software.

Introducing our space-saving solution for you: The TC2030-CTX cable!

Removing the case ofKeil ULINK2 to change cable

Simply turn the debugger over and remove the screw to expose the internal PCB.

Keil ULINK2 debugging connectors

Attach the TC2030-CTX straight into the ARM Cortex and you’re ready to go!

The TC2030-CTX comes in both “legged” and “no-leg” versions.

The TC2030-CTX-NL will require the TC2030-CLIP if you want a hands-free solution while debugging.

6-Pin "No Legs" TC2030 Plug-of-Nails™ programming 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-Nails™ Connector saves over 66% of the PCB space used by typical FTSH-105 style micro-headers! Please refer to the TC2030-IDC-NL datasheet below 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-CTX "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: The Atmel-ICE has it's header pin numbers reversed (standard pin 1 is Atmel-ICE's pin 10). To use our cable with Atmel's reversed pin-number header you'll either need to cut off the ribbon connector locating lug and plug it in backwards, or select the LEMTA option below to order with the 10-pin ribbon connector fitted backwards. If you plug in a standard (correct) Cortex cable you're going to short power and stuff out. Note: Cable only supplied, Keil's ULINK2 debugger and Tag-Connect Demo PCB and additional Legged Cable are shown for illustrative use only - not included with the cable!

HELP
This product is intended to temporarily hold a TC2030 -NL ("No Legs") cable in place on a PCB. This solution will help when board space is at a premium and you need a hands free solution for debugging. We recommend keeping a few spare of these since the tiny boards are easy to misplace when working on the bench. For a more robust solution consider a TC2030 legged cable.
