Tag-Connect™ Solutions for Xilinx FPGAs

Please see below for a list of Tag-Connect™ small footprint debugging/programming cable solutions for Xilinx FPGAs. Solutions may be available for different sized target board connectors, different debugging/programming protocols or different debuggers.  Solutions are also available for either “legged” or “no legs” versions of the plug-of-nails™ target board connectors. Use the debugger links to see further information on these options as applicable to particular debuggers.

The TC-XILINX6 is an adapter designed to be plugged into the 2mm 14-pin header found on Xilinx's Platform Cable II and compatible programmers. Although primarily intended for use with our patented TC2030-IDC or TC2030-IDC-NL Plug‐of‐Nails™ Cables, this adapter may be useful to people wishing to use a 6‐pin 0.1” ribbon header on their PCB instead of the native 2mm 14-pin header. See also the similar TC2050-XILINX adapter solution that adapts to a 10-pin 0.1" header for TC2050-IDC cables. Note: Adapter only supplied, cable not included!

The TC2030-IDC-NL is our "No Legs" 6-pin Plug-of-Nails™ programming cable fitted with a 6-pin 0.1" pitch ribbon connector. With its tiny 0.02 sq inch footprint the TC2030 Tag-Connector has a footprint using about the same PCB space as an 0805 resistor. The "No Legs" versions of our cables are designed to be held in place by hand for a fast programming operation or can be temporarily retained in place for debugging when used with our TC2030-CLIP boards. See TC2030-IDC for the "Legged" version which has four additional feet which hold it securely in place on the PCB for debugging or programming use. 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"/254mm lengths (TC2030-IDC-NL-10). Contact us for 36" length versions of these cables.

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.

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.

Tag-Connect's TC2050-IDC-NL "No Legs" Plug-of-Nails™ programming 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 MCUs / FPGAs and JTAG programming and debug operations. A growing range of adaptors are available for specific and generic applications such as Xilinx SPARTAN and VERTEX FPGAs, TI MSP430 (TC2050-IDC-430), etc Also available in self-retaining "legged" version TC2050-IDC.

  • 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.
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 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 MCUs / FPGAs and JTAG programming and debug operations. A growing range of adaptors are available for specific and generic applications such as Xilinx SPARTAN and VERTEX FPGAs, TI MSP430 (TC2050-IDC-430), etc See also TC2050-IDC-NL (no-legs) version with a tiny 0.03” footprint.
