FPC connectors, which stand for Flexible Printed Circuit connectors, refer to a type of electrical spare part specifically designed to assemble specially designed electronic circuits or flex circuits, corresponding to flexible electronics. These types of connectors are capable of building special electronic circuits by mounting electronic devices over some kind of flexible plastic substrate; polyimide or transparent conductive polyester film, for example.
FPC, or Flexible Printed Circuit connectors, are equipped with amazing features, capable of meeting the demands and challenges of the growing market. Some of the key features of FPC connectors are:
FPC connectors are designed to accommodate both FPC & FFC cables.
They are ideal for devices that require smaller centerlines, minimum pitch spacing, or reduced profile heights.
Using FPC connectors doesn't require any tools.
They are available in both vertical mounting and right-angle orientations, providing usage flexibility.
They come with a greater retention force thanks to their locking feature.
Uses of FPC connectors
FPC connectors are used in a multitude of applications but more specifically, they are best suited for use in devices like:
