FFC/FPC one-touch connectors for automotive infotainment and more

Mouser now stocks the Easy-On FFC/FPC One-Touch connectors from Molex. The FFC and FPC connectors provide single-step mating with an auto-pin-lock mechanism and large, visible release button for un-mating. The connectors are perfect for employment in automotive connected mobility and IoT infotainment systems, assembly automation, smart appliances, PCB servers, and LED and OLED displays.

The connectors offer outstanding signal integrity with an insulation resistance of 50 megaohms, a dielectric withstanding voltage of 125VAC, and operating temperatures of up to 125C. Selective gold plating on the signal terminal helps stop solder wicking on the SMT solder tail, enhancing signal integrity. The 0.5mm-pitch connector facilitates quick and easy cable insertion and mating operation in both manual or automatic assembly environments, with a large lead-in that helps stop misalignment.

The connectors are offered in a range of 10 to 80 circuits with two different heights to give a high degree of design flexibility. Also, the connector provides single and double contacts to assure reliability and versatility in circuit size, height and cable styles.
