Molex 0.25mm Pitch Easy-On™ Bottom-Contact FPC Connectors
Molex designed the 503320 Series 0.25mm Pitch Easy-On™ Flexible Printed Circuits (FPC) Connectors with a higher housing area to provide greater space savings and flexibility for applications with tight space restraints. The higher housing area enables components such as small resistors, capacitors, and selected connectors to be placed under the FPC; resulting in increased PCB space, greater cable retention reliability, and better protection of FPC cable pads. Molex incorporated the design concepts of its earlier series FPC connectors in the 0.25mm Pitch Easy-On FPC Connectors including extended actuator construction, actuator-to-housing friction lock, front solder tab under the housing, a spring feature on odd and even contacts to retain electrical contact as terminals flex, 0.3mm pitch cable tolerance, and full zero insertion force (ZIF) construction to enable easier handling and cable insertion. The connectors are right angle, SMT, bottom contact mounting, and are available in a choice of 25, 37, or 41 contacts. These connectors are ideal for mobile phones, portable audio players, digital cameras, portable games, car navigation, personal navigators (PND), and any application requiring maximum PCB space savings.
