ZIF Connector for Small Consumer Electronics
FCI developed its YLL Series 0.3 mm pitch, low profile FPC ZIF connectors for mobile phone, digital still and video cameras, and display applications. The connector is available in two versions: the D-Series with down-side contacts at a maximum height of 1.0 mm, and the U-Series with upper-side contacts with a maximum height of 1.05 mm. Both versions have a front flip-type actuator for easy cable insertion. The series also features high cable retention to ensure that the cable stays in place in demanding applications. Staggered surface mount leads facilitate processing the connector to the board. Gold plating is used in the contact area to prevent whiskering issues.
