Selector field, FFC connector and often confusing FPC connector, although both of the electrical connectors are flexible cable connector FFC connector and the difference on the FPC connector or a certain degree.
FFC Flexible Flat Cable connector namely (Flexible Flat Cable) connectors, FPC is a Flexible printed Circuit (Flexible Print Circuit). The manufacture, the line formed by the way they are different. FPC is, by means of chemical etching the FCCL (flexible copper-clad) get walking routes of different single-sided double-sided and multi-layer structure of the flexible circuit board. FFC is up and down with two layers of insulation on flat copper foil, foil membrane between the finished product is relatively simple, the thickness of the thicker.
Strictly, the natural FFC much cheaper, considering the production cost, more companies prefer to use FFC related design
Related: FFC connector is a PET insulation material and a very thin tin flat copper wire, through the high-tech automation equipment production line pressing into new data cable, with soft, arbitrary bending, folding, thickness thin, small volume, simple connection, convenient disassembly, easy to solve electromagnetic shielding (EMI).
