FlashcatUSB Clip Adapters Collage

The FlashcatUSB Clip Adapters can access parallel flash memory (NAND and NOR) in-circuit using various TSOP48 and TSOP56 clips, no desoldering necessary. They're designed to work with the FlashcatUSB xPort 1.X made by EmbeddedComputers, on that webpage is a list of the NAND and NOR flashes that are supported. They do not support the new xPort 2.0.

Here is a video I made about the clip adapters as well as a basic tutorial on using them with the FlashcatUSB xPort. I’ve made a more in depth tutorial video and a video going over some troubleshooting steps. I also have some documentation for the adapters.

The names of the adapters use the same naming convention as those of the FlashcatUSB Parallel Adapters since they support memory with the same pinouts, on that webpage you can buy socket versions of all these adapters as well as other socket adapters.

On the dedicated page for each clip adapter there is an image of the NAND/NOR pinouts that it supports, so you can figure out which adapter will work with the flash memory you need to access.

You can find the clips themselves on websites like eBay, AliExpress, and various modchip/modding websites. I’ve included links to some websites that sell the clips on each adapter page, however I’ve never bought clips from them myself.

You can download the software for the FlashcatUSB xPort from here.

Have any questions or just want to talk about the FlashcatUSB Clip Adapters? Head on over to the Riot.im room at #FCXAdapters:matrix.org. You can also visit the BlackCatUSB forum where there’s already a thread for the adapters.
