FPC Test Connector

Product Descriptions:

In electronic devices, such as cell phones and digital cameras, flexible printed circuit boards are often used to make an electrical connection
between boards and modules in place of cables.
Traditionally, connectors have been used to test the electrical properties of these components, in order to identify the need for any design or
manufacturing modifications, however, because of durability issues, connectors have a very short life.

SANYU proudly introduces the latest FPC Test Connector system using interposer technology (Elastech™ ).
By using this interposer technology(Elastech™ ), our test connector achieves excellent durability, reliability and high frequency characteristics, in addition to easy maintenance and high operability.

SANYU proudly introduces the latest FPC Test Connector system using interposer technology (Elastech™ ). By using this interposer technology(Elastech™ ), our test connector achieves excellent durability, reliability and high frequency characteristics, in addition to easy maintenance and high operability.

Features:

♦ Pitches as low as 0.2 mm center to center. Mixed pitch is also available.
♦ Mechanical life is more than 500,000 cycles.
♦ Laser ablated contact surface creates great contact stability that also improves reliability.
♦ The rectangular contact design provides for enough contact margin for FPC pole inserts in an anteroposterior direction.
♦ Interposers (Elastech™ ) are low inductance.
♦ Low maintenance replacement.
♦ Short electrical contact length (0.3mm) is ideal for high frequency components.
(By creating stripline with connecting boards, high-frequency range measurements are achievable. Additionally, coaxial flat cable is also available for connector wiring.)

General Specifications:

♦ Max. Current rating 1.5A
♦ Max. Voltage rating 50V (AC/DC)
♦ Withstand voltage AC 250V/1 min.
♦ Insulation resistance Min. 100MΩ (250V)
♦ Contact resistance Max. Less than 100mΩ (contact area)
♦ Operating temperature 0-65

Thin Film Interposer Cross-Sectional View

Use Application:

A jig connector is used to produce an electrical connection for evaluation and inspection of flexible printed board utilized circuits, modules and units.

♦ Operation function test for the imaging and motor units in digital video cameras and digital cameras
♦ Operation function test for pickup and motor units in HDD, FDD and MOD
♦ Operation function test for pickup and motor units in CD and DVD
♦ LCD module operation check
♦ Also suitable for many electronic devices and parts, such as cameras, audio-video equipment, and automotive components.

High frequency applicable FPC test connector:

Due to the faster signal on current circuit boards, flexible boards, which transmit signal, are also becoming high frequency compatible. Our high frequency applicable FPC test connectors are made to take advantage of the Interposer’s (Elastech™ ) thin feature.

* High frequency FPC test connector will be designed to customer specifications, please ask your sales contact for more details.

Operation

PUSH: Hold to open guide

space

INSERT: Release to close

“Guide” is designed for each FPC/FFC, and will adjust FPC/FFC to proper position for best performance and precision.

CLOSE: Release to close
