Visual Cortex JTAG Pins Question


#1

Hi there, I received my visual cortex in the mail the other day, and while unboxing and reading the manual I noticed there’s a set of pins labelled JTAG on the back of the module (Labelled “A”). The last pin on the right is bent to face away from the other pins. My question is, is this intentional and will I ever need to connect anything to these pins? Thanks

JTAG is used for programming / serial connection to a processor of some type. Unless you are re-flashing (one of) the processors, you probably won’t need it.

Yep, shouldn’t cause a problem. You can bend the pin back or leave it as it is, as long as it’s not broken or shorting against something in the assembly.
