High Density Connector

Miraco, Inc. introduces its CARL™ (Circuit Aligning Restraining Locking system) Connector for the automotive industry. The CARL provides a low cost, easy to install solution that is ideal for instrumentation panel, headliner, and door panel connections.

The CARL high-density connector interconnects flexible printed circuits (FPC) to flat flexible cables (FFC). Designed for applications where the distance between connecting points is an obstacle, this locking, self-aligning mechanical connector features a clamp pressure system that creates a reliable, gas-tight connection. The CARL's innovative design allows users to utilize the FFC on an "as needed" basis because stripped and dimpled reels of FFC, which need only a simple on-site cut and assembly are now available.

The self-aligning CARL does not require a mating connector or soldering on a printed circuit board (PCB). This parts reduction eliminates many points of system failure and reduces overall cost of development.
