Molex Inc. added two new products in its Premo-Flex line of flat flex cable (FFC) and etched polyimide jumpers. Both products provide flexible, durable PCB connections for a variety of applications, including medical devices, consumer electronics and automotive electronics.
Molex has added an ultra-thin, ultra-flexible 0.12 mm cable to its line of Premo-Flex FFC jumpers. The complete line is available in 0.50, 1.00 and 1.25 mm pitch; multiple circuit sizes, from 4 to 60; and standard cable lengths, from 30 to 305 mm, providing designers with virtually limitless options. Molex can also accommodate custom requirements for FFC cable jumpers in lengths of over 305 mm. All Molex FFC jumpers can be terminated to Zero Insertion Force (ZIF), non-ZIF or Low Insertion Force FFC connectors and are well-suited for complex board-to-board interconnections in confined spaces.
The Premo-Flex polyimide jumpers from Molex feature etched-copper circuitry, allowing designers to achieve the tight tolerances required for a reliable link to fine-pitch, 0.30 mm and smaller microminiature connectors. By terminating with Molex's 0.30 mm pitch Easy-On and BackFlip FPC Connectors, the product meets the needs of designers looking for a dual-contact ZIF connector that enables them to utilize the same PCB pattern on adjoining, parallel PCBs. It also maximizes board space and allows design flexibility for compact applications such as digital cameras and handheld medical equipment.
