Flexible FFC/FPC connector solutions

Avnet Abacus offers a wide product portfolio of flat flexible cable / flat printed circuit (FFC/FPC) connectors from Hirose. Incorporating the latest innovative technology, these FFC/FPC connectors are suitable for a broad range of applications such as industrial control units, FA cameras, medical devices, security devices, car navigation, in-car cameras, point-of-sale machines and other devices.

The product range features some of the lowest size profiles in the industry, with pitch sizes as low as 0.2mm and up to 1mm to save space on the PCB. The lowest height profile is only 0.5mm to maximize the space above the connector.

Easy insertion and reliable connection with the FFC/FPC connectors are achieved with the flip-lock versions, and backflip versions allow a higher FFC/FPC retention force. One-action locks enable automated insertion of the FFC/FPC to the connector.
