Tag-Connect – Out of this World Ingenuity!

Mars helicopter Ingenuity technology demonstrator

Tag-Connect Plug-of-Nails™ programming connectors were used on the development of the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter to minimize PCB real estate and component weight (no mating half connector is required on the PCB). Three TC2050 footprints can be seen on the Flight Control Board.
