Tag Connect: a Tiny In-Circuit Programming Cable

Tag Connect is a neat new in-circuit programming cable that allows you to shrink the footprint of your programming pins on your pcb.  They offer quite a few sizes of the adapter cable, and even have a version that will work with the Adafruit USBtinyISP.  They offer pre-designed footprints for most major CAD programs, including Eagle and KiCad.  That other little PCB in the photo above is a retaining clip.  This allows you to hold the programming cable in place on the board hands-free.  They offer 6, 10, and 14 pin versions, and cost about $30 per cable.
