FFC cables are available in the following grid dimensions: 0.50 mm, 0.80 mm, 1.00 mm 1.25 mm, 1.27 mm and 2.54 mm. The smallest available grid is 0.50 mm. The pitch dimensions of 0.50 mm and 1.00 mm are deemed to be standard.
connection type / skinning
FFC Flex Foil Cables are available in various designs. The direct mounting with FFC/FPC connectors is a very popular technique. However, the direct soldering to PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards) or the connection with conductive adhesives by the HEAT SEAL procedure is also possible.
Bending cycles - tolerances
In general the extremely flexible FFCs are divided into different categories. Cables – from the static version (type K) to the highly flexible version with silicone (type E) – are manufactured for various applications.
UL is an independent organization which analyses and certifies products as to their reliability. We offer cables according to the following UL-styles: UL2896/UL20624/UL20696/UL2643.
As in many product ranges also FFCs are available in various special designs as there are: folded FFCs, shielded FFCs with/without grounded shield, PULL-tabs (assembling aid), ident print or since recently also black colored FFC cables or FFC with “sidecatcher” function e.g. for the HIROSE FH40 series. There is a great variety. So please do not hesitate to contact us, we will support you.
