Why FFC connectors?
FFC connectors vs. traditional 'two piece' male and female IDC and discrete wire cable to board systems have several advantages including a smaller PCB package size, low height profile, light weight, one piece nature means low cost and they have fewer assembly actions.

FFC is also favored in applications where moving parts mean the flexibility of FFC wins over discrete cable/IDC, such as scanners and photocopiers.
Connector Types

Zero Insertion Force (ZIF)

  • During insertion, no force is exerted on the cable contacts by the connector contacts.
  • Has a locking actuator to hold FFC/FPC in place.
  • Useful in applications with shock and higher vibration (E.G. handheld).

Flip lock type
