0.30 mm (.012") Backflip Easy-On FPC Connectors

Molex's 502598 dual-contact FPC connectors designed for overall compact features

Image of Molex's 0.30 mm (.012') Backflip™ Easy-On™ FPC ConnectorsMolex's 0.30 mm pitch dual-contact FPC connector offers the most compact dimensions of any equivalent competitive version, while eliminating the need to source a top- and bottom-style connector when routing FPC to parallel boards.

Molex developed its 502598 dual-contact FPC connector for consumer applications, such as digital still cameras, requiring overall compact features. Designers for these applications were also looking for a dual-contact version that would enable them to source a single connector and utilize the same PCB pattern on adjoining parallel PCBs. Molex's 502598 solutions meet these needs and more.

Molex offers another 0.30 mm pitch dual-contact version with a lower profile, series 502250, which is ideal for ultra-thin applications such as certain cell phone designs. However, the 502598 FPC connectors offer a shorter depth than the 502250 version and other similar competitive versions, and are suitable for applications needing an overall compact size.

Molex's dual-contact design eliminates the need for different top- and bottom-mount connectors. Compact depth, height, and width offer space savings for mobile devices and tight-packaging applications. Movable contacts help to maintain secure and stable connections even when the cable is pulled upward. The Backflip actuator with short latch makes for easy cabin insertion, actuations, and additional space savings. Front-wide solder tabs secure PCB retention and protection for solder joints.
