Flat Flexible Cable
Mon, 09/10/2007 - 9:46am
Gold contact FFC/FPC connectors may be mated with flat flexible cable that contains a gold coating on the stripped ends for an extra measure of reliability in board-to-board interconnections. In addition to its standard line of flat flexible cables carrying bare copper or tinplated copper conductors with polyester or polyimide tape insulation, the company offers this gold-plated solution for use with ZIF/LIF connectors (Zero-/Low Insertion Force). The FFC cables are extremely flexible and designed to be thin and narrow for smaller footprints and higher packaging density compared to round wire construction.
