FFC, FPC (Flat Flexible) Connectors
Products in this family are interconnect components specifically designed for use with Flat Flexible Cable (FFC) and Flexible Printed Circuit (FPC) materials. These components primarily serve the purpose of establishing a cable-to-board interconnect function. They are mounted onto a printed circuit board and provide both electrical connection and mechanical retention for an inserted FFC or FPC cable.
These interconnect products are specifically engineered to accommodate the unique characteristics of FFC and FPC materials. FFC is a type of ribbon-like cable that consists of multiple flat conductors sandwiched between layers of insulation. FPC, on the other hand, refers to a flexible circuit made of a thin film of conductive material deposited onto a flexible substrate.
The interconnect components in this family are designed to securely hold and establish electrical connections with FFC or FPC cables. They typically feature a connector housing with contacts that align with the conductive traces on the cable. The FFC or FPC cable is inserted into the connector, and the contacts make contact with the conductive traces, enabling the transfer of electrical signals.
In addition to electrical connection, these interconnect products also provide mechanical retention for the inserted cable. This ensures that the cable remains securely attached to the printed circuit board, even in applications where vibrations, movements, or other external forces may be present.
It's worth noting that there may be variations in the design and configuration of these interconnect components, depending on the specific application requirements. Different sizes, pin configurations, and mounting options may be available to suit various FFC and FPC cable types and board layouts.
In summary, the products in this family are interconnect components specifically designed for FFC and FPC materials. They serve the purpose of establishing a cable-to-board interconnect function, providing both electrical connection and mechanical retention for the inserted cable. These components are tailored to accommodate the unique characteristics of FFC and FPC materials and may offer various design options to suit different application requirements.
