The development direction of FPC connectors
FPC connectors are mainly used in various digital communication products, portable electronic products, computer peripherals, measuring instruments, automotive electronics and other fields, and have become an indispensable part of most electronic equipment. Its advantages are also very obvious, high density, small size, light weight, can reduce space occupation, reduce weight and cost. In order to adapt to the development of electronic products, FPC connector technology is constantly updated and iterated, high-speed micro will be the trend.
1, small precision
The miniaturization of electronic devices is driving the development of flexible connectors to this smaller pitch, thinner thickness direction, small pitch, low height, more pin number of FPC connectors is the main direction of future development.
It is understood that the international minimum pitch can be achieved 0.175mm; domestic FPC connector minimum pitch can be achieved 0.2mm.
Canda Electronics Industrial Co., Ltd. associate Zhou Kunhua said, "The smaller the FPC connector, the more precise, the more pin pins will not occupy the limited space on the PCB board, so that the effect of a high degree of integration can be achieved." Canda Electronics previously laid out in the consumer sector inside a FPC connector, the overall height of 0.5mm pitch to 0.9mm, the overall size can be smaller than 0.3mm pitch.
2, high-frequency high-speed
In addition to miniaturization, precision, high-frequency high-speed is also the direction of development of the connector, in the field of automotive electronics, high-end intelligent electronic devices will be widely used.
To LCD TVs, for example, high-definition TVs from 2K to 8K march towards high frame rate, high-definition development, the connector transmission also put forward new requirements, and signal transmission lines, shielded lines, LVDS lines such as the traditional plate-type process is costly and complex, FPC connectors can be a good alternative to the traditional plate-type connection, not only the process is progressing, but also to reduce costs.
Kang Rui electronic Yang Wuxiao said, FPC connectors can be designed to increase the wiring layer and flexible structure to constitute the impedance of the line, the formation of high-speed transmission circuit to meet the special requirements of high-frequency high-speed transmission.
As the FPC connector technology continues to progress, in the case of tight internal space can also achieve high-speed transmission, and thus will be widely used.
