AVX has released the high current, low profile 6808 Series right-angle FPC connector from Kyocera Connector Products. Suitable for both FPC connections and battery connections in applications including batteries, power supplies, robotics, and small electronic motors, the series is claimed to be the industry's first ultraminiature (0.5mm pitch), flip-locking FPC connector with a 4A power rating and dual-sided, top and bottom contacts that effectively mitigate FPC insertion and PCB layout restrictions. Featuring six power pins capable of transferring up to 4A and one signal pin capable of transferring 0.5A, the connectors can also be employed as seven-pin signal connectors, and come combined with a notched FPC to prevent contact misalignment and enhance resistance against shock and vibration. "Our high current, low profile 6808 Series FPC connectors deliver unrivalled physical and performance specifications, and are as robust as they are versatile, providing electronics design engineers with high contact reliability, impressive resistance to tensile forces, and maximum layout and employment flexibility for both FPC and battery connections," said Nick Bogovich, product marketing and systems manager for Kyocera Connector Products at AVX.
