This 0.25 mm pitch FPC connector saves up to 40% of space compared to similar 0.3 mm pitch connectors. Available from 21 to 39 circuits, the SMT ZIF (zero insertion force) connector includes spring features on the terminals, ensuring secure electrical contact is maintained even if the cable is pulled up or down after actuation. The terminal design also provides full ZIF functionality, which means no contact is made between the cable and connector during insertion, providing protection against wear or damage to the FPC contact pads. The front flip Easy-On actuator offers easy cable access and strong cable retention. An actuator-to-housing friction lock provides additional cable retention and an audible click when mating.
