A new ultra-thin FPC connector developed by Japan Aviation Electronics (JAE) has the lowest height in the industry. The FF07 Series FPC connector is ideal for use in slim and multi-function portable medical/industrial devices and other products requiring low profile connectors.
The space-saving FF07 Series connector has a height of only 0.7 mm (0.027 in.), a 3.85-mm (0.15-in.) depth, and 0.3-mm (0.01-in.) pitch. Compatible with 0.12-mm ±0.02-mm (0.004-in. ±0.001-in.) ultra-thin FPC cable, the FF07 Series connector features an "easy lock" for FPC connection, with the actuator located on the opposite side of the insertion slot. Set in the "open" position at delivery, the actuator enables insertion and locking in one action, reducing customer man-hours for installation. The ZIF structure requires no force for insertion/removal, and FPC side tabs prevent slanted insertion. The design of the upper FPC connection structure prevents the FPC from pulling in the upward direction and the bottom side is covered with resin to prevent a short circuit with traces on board. These environmentally friendly connectors are both lead and halogen free.
FF07 Series connectors are available with either 39 or 51 positions. Additional specifications include a current rating of 0.35 Amps per terminal (10 Amps AC/DC for each terminal), 100 milliohms contact resistance (max.), 250 VAC r.m.s. dielectric withstanding voltage, and guaranteed mating durability of 20 times, max. Delivery is 8-12 weeks.
