Nicomatic offers FFC cables with an Aluminum foil shield that provides protection against EMI/RFI. These cables are available in all pitches from 0.5 mm and higher, in almost any length and number of conductors. While Nicomatic recommends a shield that is grounded 360 degrees, externally on both ends to achieve maximum shielding effectiveness, we also provide cables with floating grounds and internally grounded shields for simple connections to ground.
In addition to the improved shielding effectiveness, Nicomatics aluminum shielded cables also have a solid layer of polyester over the aluminum to prevent unwanted shorts to chassis that are typical of silver spray shielded products with dielectric coatings.
Nicomatics shielded cables are also very thin and flexible, which allows optimal routing of cables and minimal stress onto joints in applications such as touchscreens. This combination of benefits makes Nicomatics aluminum shielded FFC cable a superior choice for almost any shielding application.
