Tag-Connect In-Circuit Cable Legged Version

Part Number: TC2030-MCP

Summary:

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.

Additional Information
Tag-Connect Legged cable (TC2030-MCP) works like this:
Three locating pins align the connector’s pins while four legs snap into the PCB holding it securely in place for a prolonged debugging or programming session. The other end of the cable terminates in a 6P6C modular plug and connects directly to your debugger or programmer.

Summary

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 100,000 operations to make a secure connection to a special footprint pattern of pads and locating holes on your PCB. The footprint can take up as little board space as 0.02 square inches (about the space needed for a couple of 0805 SMT resistors) which means you can locate the footprint right next to the MCU if desired.
