Clip Type FPC Testing Socket with horse-shoe shape contact and elevator FPC stage

Munich, - Ongoing miniaturization and further product complexity - due to the increased number of product sub-assemblies - require a reliable temporary contacting system to outperform the current FPC sub-assembly test. To ensure the performance of even more complex FPC sub-assemblies within a system, Yamaichi designed the LC Series, a smart and operator-friendly testing jig.

The development target was to create a user-friendly und high reliable contact system which enables the customers to perform their product functionality test. The challenges were the ultra fine pitches down to 0.3mm and simultaneously dealing in parallel with the FPC production tolerances. The design of the LC Series is successful in overcoming the challenges.

The LC Series comes with special designed contacts carrying out a micro wiping action and thus ensures a stable and low contact resistance. Another feature is the elevator stage preventing the FPC pads from being damaged or scratched, and protecting simultaneously the contacts during the FPC load/unload operation.

This clothes-pin mechanism guarantees an outstanding reliability and easy-to-use operation. As an output option the customer can choose between discrete wiring, MIL Std. or FPC connector.
