I need to use pogo connectors/pads that will be routed to MSP430 microcontroller. These pogo pads will be routed in a way that allows for JTAG 4-wire programming to program the microcontroller. Is there a way/cable to connect from your PC (like USB) to JTAG that uses pogo connectors? I need to incorporate these three elements: POGO, JTAG, and USB.
The typical setup is:
- JTAG adapter: connected to your PC via USB
- Pogo adapter cable: connected to your JTAG adapter (e.g. using a JTAG connector)
- The PCB has 4 pads or holes in a row that the pogo pins can be pressed against
Well-know adapter cables are from Tag-Connect. In addition to the pogo pins, they have alignment pins. They don't have a 4 pin version though.
Less expensive offers exist in China, e.g. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000317819667.html. At least the cable would be usable.
