FFC Solutions Guide (PDF)

Also known as flexible flat conductor cable, this product is lightweight, low profile, small outline cable designed to satisfy high density cabling applications. It excels in applications that cause the cable to be flexed repeatedly. FFC Cable can be folded into shapes as needed. Flat flexible cable is designed for high cycle life applications as well as for board-to-board jumpers. The flat flexible cables are available in a variety of pitches to fit a broad spectrum of applications. 

    Features:
    •  Copper conductors rolled flat for high flex life
    •  Available as blunt-cut, stripped and tinned for zif connector or terminated with solder tabs, pins or receptacles
    • Choice of conductor pitches accommodates a variety of PCB hole patterns
    •  Insulation is polyester that is permanently laminated to the conductors
    • Cable assemblies may be “connectorized” to mate with industry standard headers
    • EMI/RFI shielding is available either in the form of a jacket placed around the cable or of conductive ink printed directly on the cable’s insulation

Custom Flexstrip® Jumpers

Flexstrip Solutions Guide (PDF)

Flexstrip Jumpers are multi-conductor board to board interconnect devices, pre-plated and ready to use without wire stripping, cutting to length, or solder preparation. They provide a convenient, reliable alternative to conventional point-to-point wiring. A Flexstrip Jumper may be repeatedly flexed without failure. The benefit is that its round-to-flat conductor design and one piece construction give vibration-proof reliability and longer life expectancy than conventional wiring systems.


Features:
    • Round copper conductors rolled flat for high flex life
    • Tin plated for easy soldering
    • Round- to-flat transition zone permits flexing stress to be distributed evenly throughout the flat conductor area
    • Round pin ends facilitate PC board insertion and long life
    • Round-to-flat design provides vibration-proof reliability and long life
    • Round- to-flat transition zone acts as a hinge between PC boards
    • Choices of conductor pitches accommodate virtually any PCB hole pattern
