Hirose – FH53 Series: Super Low Profile Back Flip FPC Connector for High Density Applications


HIROSE_Logo         NPI_LOGO
The FH53 Series FPC connector employs a back flip style actuator that minimizes the required mounting area, saving valuable PCB real estate. The compact FH53 Series FPC connector is on a 0.2mm pitch, a mounted depth of 3.2mm and a height of only 0.65mm. With a weight of only 0.034g, the FPC connector is well suited for a wide range of consumer, medical, point of sale and wearable electronics applications.

The FH53 Series FPC connector offers excellent impedance characteristics, and delivers high-density transmission required to support embedded display port version 1.3 and MIPI D-PHY version 1.1 standards.

The FH53 connector has a top contact design that employs a contact retention spring, which ensures high reliability and signal continuity. The back flip style actuator and bottom contact design provides a high retention force of 9.9N. The contact design also prevents against solder wicking and flux penetration.

The FPC connectors have a user-friendly design, which includes wide tapers providing smooth FPC insertion. The FH53 Series also incorporates a metal lock mechanism, which allows for horizontal FPC insertion/withdrawal, and produces a clear tactile click that ensures complete insertion. The FPC tab lock firmly holds the FPC in place until the actuator is locked.

The FH53 Series is currently available in 41- position (full production) and 51-position (samples) versions, with 21- and 31-position models available soon.

The high speed FH53 Series is designed for portable electronics that require high speed transmission:
• Smartphones
• Cameras and video recorders
• Notebooks and tablets
• DVD and Blu-ray players
• Portable music players
• Handheld gaming systems
• Medical devices
