Flat Flex Cable Manufacturers provide a broad range of standard styles FFC Card cables as shown underneath, in pitches 0.50, 0.80, 1.0, 1.25, 1.27, and 2.54mm to fit a wide variety of electronic applications as board to board interconnections in thin environments. Using this guide you can create your own product with various conductor sizes and insulation thicknesses. Most standard configurations rarely exceed 36 ways and this is the limit of the online configurator. However, our laminating cables machines process’ actually allows us to use up to 108 max. conductors. In cases requesting a larger number than 36 conductors, contact the manufacturer of FFC card cables are used in commercial and industrial applications such as screen displays, touchscreens, etc.. They are cut and have an exposed length for use in connections between electronic modules or PCBs and are made of tin copper conductors insulated by polyester. Pure Tin is standard Tin Bismuth (SnBi) is available for 0.5 and 1.0 mm pitch.
The cables can be directly soldered or used with ZIF or LIF type connectors. They are UL approved for numerous styles and most cables are rated for 105°C and as much as 300V. An aluminum FFC shield option provides efficient protection against EMI/RFI interferences. An option of FFC Gold cables has been launched with 0.10μm of gold plating and 1μm (40µin) of nickel plating. Gold plated FFC cables provide a galvanic free connection for gold plated connectors. In addition, the nickel plated thickness is sufficient to prevent copper bleed thru for the life of your product.P3 and P5• 0.50 pitch 406406• All Others 510510
