FFC and FPC connectors offer a one piece component solution, no need for male and female connectors and labour intensive cable assemblies, this means it's a lower cost and easier procurement.  The value engineered FFC/FPC connector range offers a low a profile height, small PCB footprint and lightweight solution all in one package and is ideal for compact and space saving designs.  FFC/FPC connectors also offer simplicity for operators to terminate in final box build.

GCT's FFC / FPC connectors are ZIF, or Zero Insertion Force, this means that when the cable is in place no force is exerted on the cable contacts by the connector contact. A locking actuator holds the cable in place which is beneficial in applications with shock and high vibration.

Special features such as those found on the FFC205 series, are designed for cable with retention ears for maximum strengthen, providing an extra level of security and peace of mind when mated.  More detailed information and details about the full GCT FFC/FPC range can be accessed below.
