There are some inquiry on how to use pogo pin for PIC programming from different resources, Here are a few demonstrations:
(More photos are available at the following web link and a youtube video will follow.)

Pogo pin approaching pads on circuit board (Pin 1 mark is on the other side of the header):


Pushing and holding the pogo pins with the pads on circuit board (The ball header will self-align all pins with the pads) during programming:
((Pin 1 mark is on the other side of the header))

Thank you  Smile

Yeah, I did make up something similar for myself some time ago.

GENOVA :D :D ! GODO

ORIGINAL: Stefan Uhlemayr

Well, the big advantage I see in the TC2030-MCP is the protection against reverse-connecting, and this provided at pretty small place. And together with the snapping mechanics it gives nearly the same advantages as using a RJ11-connector (this connector is in a lot of cases not possible to use, just because of size-issues) on the board. 
I see it the same way, Stefan.  You can snap the connector into place without thinking too much about where Pin 1 is located, and then program your prototype without fishing around to find a cable end, holding it in place against the contacts, etc.

I will probably give it a try on the next project.  Then, with some real experience in hand, and seeing what the retail pricing does, I'll decide whether to adopt it as a new standard or revert to my 2mm header.

Now the flexible cable is released at our online store:

The 6-pin pogo connector is also available online now:

Here is a few more information about the POGO pin tips:

1. Select the right tip for pogo pin cable:
http://www.auelectronics.com/forum/index.php/topic,42.msg128.html#msg128

2. Application for Spherical Radius Tip:
http://www.auelectronics.com/forum/index.php/topic,42.msg129.html#msg129

3. Application for Conical Tip:
http://www.auelectronics.com/forum/index.php/topic,42.msg130.html#msg130

4. Application for Chisel Tip:
http://www.auelectronics.com/forum/index.php/topic,42.msg131.html#msg131

5. Application for Serrated Tip:
http://www.auelectronics.com/forum/index.php/topic,42.msg132.html#msg132

Each of the tip design might just got its own pros and cons which makes it hard to find a one for all solution. The tip on all our "pogo pin header" and "pogo pin cable" are replaceable, the tip can be change to other style or replaced by the same style after 1 million cycles of usage (typical wear-out life). We can also provide different tips per customer request.

So far, the spherical radius tip has been used on white appliance assembly line with very good feedback. It is also used for large quantity of "home entertainment system" manufacturing plant. We got the same good result at our own facility too.

The spring contact probe technology (such as pogo-pin devices) is such a widely adopted technology, there might be many more experience from others, which is welcome to be shared here or our forum:
