Small Devices And FPC Demand

In recent years, the output value of flexible FPC connectors has increased dramatically worldwide. Flexible FPC connectors have the ability to make efficient use of existing space, ie space above and inside the PCB.

High flexibility demand expansion

With the continuous upgrading of new technologies such as industrial automation, artificial intelligence, autonomous driving, and data centers, as a key component of the interconnection between electrical and electrical, connectors have also begun to face the transformation of products and technologies. In order to adapt to the trend of miniaturization of terminal devices, the high flexibility of connectors has become an increasingly attractive feature.

Flexible cables have unparalleled advantages over other cables, and the advanced, lightweight, and high speed of future terminal devices rely on flexible cables. L-com Global Connectivity ("L-com") has announced a series of new high-flexibility USB 3.0 cable assemblies with Type A male to Type-C male connectors.

"This unique high-flexibility USB 3.0 cable is designed for applications where ordinary cables are unusable due to excessive bending. It can withstand 10 times the number of bends of a standard cable while maintaining durability and USB 3.0 transmission Performance。

The flexibility of the connector also allows it to flexibly adapt to current applications in mobile phones, wearable devices and the like.

Wide range of FPC applications

In recent years, the output value of flexible FPC connectors has increased dramatically worldwide. Flexible FPC connectors have the ability to make efficient use of existing space, ie space above and inside the PCB. In addition to cost savings, it also enables high wiring density design, which is popular in many electronic devices on the market. Another advantage is that it can connect to different devices because it is small and has very important features. For example, in a digital camera, the display can be pulled out using the FPC connector, or the position can be flexibly adjusted while the camera body remains connected to the appliance.

Molex's compact FFC (Flexible Flat Cable) - FPC (Flexible Printed Circuit) connectors range from 0.20 to 2.00 mm in a small, lightweight form factor that provides extremely high signal reliability. This small pitch FFC-FPC connector offers a wide range of connections, including ZIF, LIF, slider and flip connections. It is also compatible with a wide range of circuit-count components and FPC-to-board connectors, and is extremely low cost but supports high bandwidth data rates.

Molex Regional Sales Manager Weng Weixiong said: "The Easy-On FFC-FPC connector meets today's demand for general-purpose flexible solutions for consumer products, automotive, medical applications and many other applications."
