0.5mm Pitch "FA10 Series" Connector for FPC Connection Has Been Developed Unique One-action Mating Structure to Shorten Work Time and Prevent Work Mistakes

FA10 connectors
Recently hand-held devices are equipped with a lot of function modules due to the incorporation of multiple functions.
Along with this trend, the numbers of the connectors to connect the modules to the main board and other components are increasing and the minimization of the mating work time and prevention of the work mistakes are becoming an issue.
To settle these issues, JAE has developed the "FA10 Series" connector for FPC connection realizing to shorten work time and prevent work mistakes with a unique one-action mating structure.

:: Features

  Space saving FPC connector with 0.5mm pitch, 0.9mm height, 3.2mm depth.
Applicable FPC thickness 0.2 ± 0.03mm, top and bottom-surface connection type, LIF (Low Insertion Force) structure.
Guides for FPC sides for prevention of misalignment.
One-action mating, with no need for actuator or slider operation during insertion and removal.
Tapered guides in the insertion area for improved FPC insertion guidance.
Board pattern traces are possible under the connector, excluding terminal areas. Terminals at both front and back improve board retention strength.
Pb-free, halogen-free compliant product.
Ni barrier prevents solder wicking.
