Applications for the 0.30mm pitch FPC connectors include digital cameras, cellular telephones, camcorders, PDAs, portable data terminals and mini-disk players.
Both series feature a flip-top actuator that rotates 110 degrees for easy cable insertion. Staggered dual row PCB termination provides mechanical stability and easy soldering on 0.60mm spacing. The contacts are single-sided, bottom loaded and rated at 0.2A per pin, and are currently tooled with 11 to 39 contact positions, with future release for 7 to 65 contacts.
Voltage rating is 50V maximum and operating range is -25°C to +85°C. In addition to various height and pin count configurations, development efforts are currently underway for a top contact version. All parts are surface mountable and compatible with automated assembly equipment.
