Flat Flexible Cable Connectors
Our connectors for flat flexible cable (FFC) include a wide variety of high density board-to-board, wire-to-board, and wire-to-wire connectors designed for automated assembly.
The FFC connector family is composed of pin and receptacle housings designed for efficient use of printed circuit board (PCB) area. Pin and receptacle housings on .100 [2.54] centerline contact spacing and receptacle housings on .050 [1.27] centerline contact spacing use PCB area efficiently. Receptacle housings not only mate with the pin housings, but also with an array of PC board headers from other TE connector lines, including AMPMODU MTE, AMPMODU .0252 [0.642], AMPMODU System 50, and AMP-LATCH product families.
