TC2030-CTX-NL 6-Pin “No Legs” Cable with 10-pin micro-connector for Cortex processors


6-Pin “No legs” TC2030 Plug-of-Nails™ Cable for use with ARM Cortex processors.

SKU: TC2030-CTX-NL-BASE Categories: , , ,


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!
