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 Buildcircuit.NETTnext 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 MCU’s / FPGA’s and JTAG programming and debug operations.
