Wire-to-Board Connectors for Flat Panel Displays
Molex, Inc. introduced its Pico-Clasp single and dual row wire-board connectors. This family of products offers space savings in applications such as plasma display panel (PDP) TVs, liquid crystal display (LCD) TVs and notebook PCs. This .039" pitch connector system is compact, making it suitable for any compact FPD system. Versions with an inner positive lock provide latch protection and secure mating confirmation. Positive lock versions are available in six to 50 circuits. Versions with outer positive locks are available in three to five circuits, and they provide strong mating retention along with a clear audible click when all connectors are in place. Low mating and unmating forces allow for easy connector insertion and extraction.
