What is a FPC connector?
Flexible Printed Circuit (FPC) Connectors have been developed to meet the challenges of this expanding market, which demands smaller centerline or pitch spacing, lower profile heights, and lighter interconnect solutions.
How do you solder a motherboard connector?
To solder each connection: Place the tip of the soldering iron against the solder pad. Melt just enough solder onto the solder pad so that the capacitor’s contact lead holds firmly in place. Remove both the solder and the soldering iron tip from the connection as soon as enough solder melts onto the pad.
What is the difference between FPC and FFC?
Production Difference Between FFC and FPC FPCs are manufactured by etching on the Flexible Copper Clad Laminate (FCCL) and then laminated into different layers. But, FFC entails a simple lamination of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and copper wires that are flat.
How does a ZIF connector work?
ZIF sockets normally work with a two-piece plastic housing. One piece affixes the contacts to the PCB and the second piece is cam activated with a lever or screw fitting to close the contact beam after the package under test is fully inserted.
How do you solder without melting plastic?
‘[EE]: How to solder DIN without melting plastic?’
- Dab of flux on each bare wire end and a little in each solder cup.
- Tin wires (works like a champ).
- TRY to tin solder cups – solder seems to not want to stick – end up with a blob on the iron.
- Insert wire into cup.
What is the difference between FPC and FPC?
FFC refers to any type of electrical cable which is flexible and flat whilst an FPC is a flexible printed circuit.
What is SMD soldering?
Surface mount soldering is the process of creating circuits using surface mount technology (SMT) components that are mounted directly onto the surface of printed circuit boards (PCBs).
How are FPC connectors soldered to a PCB?
These are designed to be soldered to a PCB using a ‘hot-bar’ device that is pressed across all the terminals at once, instantly soldering them to the board. Nice if you’ve got one. Help is at hand.
Why are FPC connectors called ZIF connectors?
All of our fine pitch FPC connectors incorporate a flip lock actuator for greater printed circuit retention. This termination method also allows for zero insertion force, which is why this product is commonly referred to as a ZIF connector. The operation of a flip-lock actuator can be seen in the images below.
Do you need to put flux on FPC connector?
Before starting on the FPC connector make sure you paste a thin layer of flux over the tinned board connectors. This will help the solder to reflow smoothly over the FPC terminals.
Why are FPC connectors important to the market?
As the market trends towards miniaturization, FPC connectors have been developed to meet the challenges of this expanding market, which demands smaller centerline or pitch spacing, lower profile heights, and lighter interconnect solutions.
