FFC cables are a miniaturized form of the ribbon cable and consist of a flat and flexible plastic film base, with multiple flat metallic conductors bonded to one surface. FFC cables are extremely thin flat cables generally used in high-density electronic applications like laptops, cell phones and display appliances. The Flat Flexible Cables (FFC) reliably connect two PCBs or a PCB and a display unit using ZIF/LIF connectors. Flexible Flat Cable is a kind of PET insulation material and very thin plating Tin flat copper wire, a new type of data cable formed by pressing through the production line of high-tech automation equipment, with flexible, free bending. It has the advantages of stacking, thin thickness, small size, simple connection, convenient disassembly, and easy to solve electromagnetic shielding (EMI).
The FFC cables are suitable for printers, scanners, copiers, cameras, car audio, car airbags, digital cameras, MP3, DVD, VCD, display and other electronic products. In modern electrical equipment, it is almost everywhere.
