The refreshed product range has been developed to accommodate a wide variety of applications at a competitive price point. As a popular option over other wire-to-board solutions, the Flat Flexible Cable (FFC) and Flat Printed Circuit (FPC) connector range from GCT is designed to reduce cost and improve manufacturing processes and efficiency.
GCT offer a range of FFC and FPC connectors in 0.3, 0.5 & 1.0mm pitches, horizontal and vertical orientation and numerous locking styles. All are Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) designs. Connectors accept FFC which GCT can also supply in 0.5 and 1.0mm pitches.

* Suitable for FFC with retention ears
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.
