Low-Profile FPC ZIF Connector for Small Consumer Electronics
FCI developed a 0.3 mm-pitch, low-profile FPC ZIF connector suitable for mobile phone, digital still and video cameras, and display applications. Designated the YLL Series, the connector is available in two versions -- the D-Series with down-side contacts and the U-Series with upper-side contacts. The YLL-D provides 0.3 mm spacing, 13 to 45 down-side contact positions, and a maximum height of 1.0 mm. The YLL-U provides 0.3 mm spacing, 13 to 45 upper-side contact positions, and a maximum height of 1.05mm. Both versions have a front flip-type actuator for easy, error free cable insertion. This series also features high cable retention to insure the cable stays in place in demanding applications. The connector’s staggered surface mount leads make processing the connector to the board easy. Gold plating is used in the contact area to prevent whiskering issues.
