mbeals 74 Posted March 18, 2014 Author Share Posted March 18, 2014 I reckon the legs are worth the extra effort if you need to do any debugging yes and no. The extra holes required for the legs make it impossible to route traces to all the pads and stay within the specs supported by the low cost board houses (you have to use 6 mil traces and be <15mil from the drills). I've also found that the legs are really stiff and difficult to get to [dis]engage without the help of needle nose...and they require you leave enough space surrounding the pad to get your fingers/tool on the cable to get it free. As an alternative, there is this guy: http://www.tag-connect.com/TC2030-CLIP which secures the no-legs cable to the board from behind, eliminating the hassle of the legs. I haven't used it yet, but it appears to be a better solution (at least for what I do). Fred 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
