Yamaichi Non-ZIF HF512S for High-Speed Board-to-Cable Connections

By News Release | February 17, 2014

A new high-speed connector series, Yamaichi Non-ZIF HF512S connectors are an innovative solution in the field of FFC/FPC connectors with 0.5mm pitch.

Yamaichi-HF512S-High-Speed-021814-NPThe Yamaichi Non-ZIF HF512S is part of the Non-ZIF connector family as well as the high-speed portfolio. That means quick, reliable assembly of the FFC/FPC with no need to open/close a flap or drawer as with conventional zero-force connectors.

The connector features an adapter, glued to the FFC/FPC, which ensures the safe handling of the FFC during insertion. It is impossible to insert at an angle, mistake the polarity, or damage the FFC/FPC contact pad. The adapter engages audibly and perceptibly into the connector housing, locking the board side to the cable side. Pulling the FFC out is possible after pressing the adapter. That guarantees high extraction forces, resulting in a secure connection.

The contacts on the socket side are also designed to allow the HF512S to achieve high-speed signals of up to 5Gb/s. The 180° connector is available in 40-, 50-, 60-, and 64-pin versions. The contacts are gold-plated and can be soldered using the SMT reflow process. Tape-and-reel packaging is used.

Yamaichi Electronics offers the cable side as a complete assembly. The customer can choose between a YFLEX cable for high-speed applications and an FFC for standard applications. The entire system has a working temperature range of -40° to +85°C.

The new HF512S series thus combines highly developed connector design with toughness and functionality, making it the perfect solution for applications in areas such as medical technology, industry, and the consumer sector.
