TC2030-IDC 6-Pin Tag-Connect Plug-of-Nails™ Spring-Pin Cable with Legs


“Legged” 6-pin Plug-of-Nails™ Cable fitted with a 6-pin 0.1″ pitch ribbon connector.



The TC2030-IDC is our “Legged” 6-pin Plug-of-Nails™ programming cable fitted with a 6-pin 0.1″ pitch ribbon connector.

The “Legged” or “With Legs” versions of our cables snap directly into a tiny footprint of holes and pads in your PCB. By eliminating the need for a mating header component, you not only save PCB space but also cost on every board!

See TC2030-IDC-NL for the “No Legs” version which has an even smaller footprint of about the size of an 0805 SMT resistor.

Popular applications include programming Atmel AVR, many Renesas MCU’s (when used with our TC-Renesas E1 / E8a adapter) and Zilog. Also great for bringing our SPI / IIC / RS232 and test signal access.

Also available in 10″ lengths (TC2030-IDC-10). Contact us for 36″ length versions of these cables.
