I have a PCB that will have very little clearance on both sides so that putting a normal Cortex SWD .50 spacing connecter is too big. However, I'd still like to have the option of connecting via SWD to the target if the need arises for debugging. Since we're talking debugging and not just programming, holding pogo pins against the target is not feasible and I don't want to build custom jigs for every little board I make.
I know that Tag-Connect exists but there's no way I'm going to spend that kind of money on cables.
Are there any easy to implement solutions that allow a temporary but hands-free connection to a board for debugging? Preferrably with just a footprint and no actual components on the board.
