Termination Methods

There are many ways to terminate a flexible circuit. Following is a list of the most common methods of termination for consideration.

Zif Connectors

Zero Insertion Force connectors are becoming an increasingly popular method to terminate a flexible circuit. Use of a ZIF connector eliminates the need for a mating connector. The flex end “mates” into the connector usually located on the rigid board.

Through-Hole (or Surface Mount) Connectors

These are the traditionally used connectors in today’s circuit boards.

Sculptured (Unsupported) Flexible

  • Robust and durable termination
  • Custom built to meet your requirements for pitch, length, and location
  • Constructed with most copper and substrate thicknesses
  • Retains flexibility during installation

All Flex Power Flex

  • Copper to .010″ (.254 mm) allows for higher current capability in a smaller space
  • Custom built to meet your requirements for pitch, length and location
  • Selective etching allows for more robust termination while increasing flexibility in selective areas.

Crimped Contacts & Displacement Connectors

  • Contacts crimp through the dielectric material into the copper conductor
  • Contacts are available for .100″ (2.54mm) or .050″ (1.27mm)
  • Centerline housings are also available to encapsulate the contact

Additional Custom Termination Options

  • High Density Circular Connectors
  • D Subminiature Connectors
  • Surface Mount Connectors and Component
  • Pin and Socket Connectors
  • Leaded Components
