User Friendly, Highly Reliable FH58 Series FPC Connector Supports USB 3.0, Embedded DisplayPort ver1.3 and MIPI D-PHY ver1.1



SPACE-SAVING BACK FLIP FPC CONNECTOR FROM HIROSE OFFERS DESIGN FLEXIBILITY FOR HIGH-SPEED APPLICATIONS



DOWNERS GROVE, ILLINOIS -- Hirose, a leader in the design and manufacture of innovative connector solutions, has launched a compact flexible printed circuit (FPC) connector that supports USB 3.0, Embedded DisplayPort ver1.3 and MIPI D-PHY ver1.1 standards. The FH58 family of FPC connectors features a back flip style actuator that utilizes a dual-sided FPC. This unique design offers many benefits including PCB space-savings, excellent impedance characteristics and high-speed transmission. The back flip style actuator and dual-sided contact design also provide high-retention forces and reliability required in a wide range of consumer, medical, point-of-sale and other portable electronic applications.



The compact FH58 Series FPC connectors have a 0.2mm pitch, mounted depth of 3.1mm and a height of 0.9mm. Combining small size and lightweight -- the FH58 Series weighs only 0.046g -- makes the FPC connector ideal for the growing wearable electronics market.



The FPC connectors have a user-friendly design, which includes wide tapers that provide smooth FPC insertion. The FH58 Series also incorporates a metal lock mechanism, which allows for horizontal FPC insertion/withdrawal, and produces a clear tactile click that insures complete insertion. The FPC tab lock firmly holds the FPC in place until the actuator is locked.



The dual-sided contact design employs a bottom contact spring to provide high-reliability and signal continuity. This dual contact construction, along with the retention spring, delivers a retention force of 15.0N for the top contact and 14.5N for the bottom contact.



"Hirose's unique back flip and proprietary contact design produces high-FPC retention forces even in low pin-count connectors. The FH58 Series delivers up to 2.5 times more FPC retention force than similar products currently on the market," said Rick van Weezel, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Hirose Electric USA.



The FH58 Series is available in 31, 35, 41 and 51 positions. The connector meets halogen-free requirements and is RoHS compliant.



The high-speed FH58 Series is well suited for portable electronics that require high-speed transmission, including smart phones, cameras & video recorders, notebooks & tablets, DVD & Blu-ray players, portable music players, handheld gaming systems, and medical devices.
