Plug-of-NailsTM “Green” Debug Connector Technology Delivers The Ultimate in Environmentally-Friendly JTAG Programming

Tag-Connect In-Circuit Programming and Debug Cables connect to a tiny pattern of contact pads and holes in the PCB, eliminating the need for a mating connector on each and every board.

San Bruno, CA Tag-Connect, LLC. July 20th 2010

Tag-Connect today proclaimed that the “Greenest Connector is No Connector!” Their range of in-circuit programming and debug cables and adaptors literally eliminate a mating Program or Debug or JTAG connector on each and every PCB, not only saving valuable board real-estate, but also saving money, and… the environment!

The patent-pending Tag-Connect cables are available in both “legged” and “no-legs” versions. The “legged” versions have plastic retaining feet that snap into holes in the PCB and securely hold the connector in place for prolonged programming or debugging session. The “no legs” versions are designed to be hand-held during a fast programming operation.

Supplementing the established TC2030-MCP 6-pin range of cables, the new 10-pin TC2050-IDC terminates in a standard 10-pin flat ribbon connector making it suitable for use with JTAG and most families of MCU, FPGA’s, programmable devices.

The TC2030-MCP cables are natively compatible with most Microchip PIC® and dsPIC® debuggers and programmers. A growing range of generic and specific device family adaptor boards bring compatibility with MSP-430 SPY-BI-WIRE, AVR, Renesas H8 and many other applications.

The PCB footprint required can be as tiny as 0.02 square inches or roughly the same amount of board space required by an 0805 surface-mount resistor making it perfect for space-constrained designs.

Tag-Connect’s Plug-of-NailsTM In-Circuit connectors have spring-pins rated for over 100,000 operations making them ideal for use in production and development environments.
