FFC cables are made with conductive copper laminated between 2 layers of polyester, with thermic adhesive increasing life expectancy.
From 0.5 to 2.54 mm pitch, Nicomatic offers a wide range of cables for board to board environment. FFC are soldered directly or mated with ZIF/LIF standard connectors.
P3 cables are used for mating to ZIF sockets and P7 are for soldering to a PCB.
0.5 / 1 / 1.25 / 1.27 / 2.54mm pitches are available.
From 0.5mm for space saving to 2.54mm, a large variety of pitches is available to suit your needs.
Our FFCs are made up of tin plated copper conductors laminated between polyester films with a thermal adhesive for durability.
They are manufactured in-house.
It is possible to adapt the pitch you need upon request.
There are two main possibilities for the types of shieldings:
- internal ground: recommended for long distance cable to shield
- external ground: for the outer shield connection to PCB
A floating version with no ground is possible without any change in the CB design. Refer to our catalogue page 23.
No galvanic corrosion
Salt spray resistance
High performance w/ gold connectors
High actuation life even at elevated temperatures
Nicomatic recommends gold to gold connection to ensure optimal performance.
FFCs are with 0.10µm of gold in exposed areas.
We offer wide customization choices:
- Laser & die cutting
- bends & creasing
- black polyimide materials
- variable pitch
- SMD placements with connections
- video cables
- flexcoil, bulk supply etc.
Our FFCs are used in a wide variety of electronic applications as board to board interconnections: for example in
- Industry & robotics
Yes. You can choose a polyimide substrate working up to +125°C in standard.
The other standard possibility is polyester working up to 105°C.
If you have a need to go above 125°C, please consult us.

Have a look on our comparative chart displayed in the FFC catalogue (pages 22-23 - June 2014 version).
Our standard part numbering available online supports is a 2-digit system, so we can build from 2 to 99 conductors.
However, the manufacturing process allows us without problem to configurate from 1 to 250 conductors. Consult us for your bigger & more dense solutions.
The minimum is 0015mm, and our part numbering stops at 9999mm, but we can provide much longer FFCs without problem.
Continous lengths are available. Consult us.
Depending on your choice INT1 or INT2:
INT1: ground to pin 1 and pin NN on one end (ground is achieved to first and last conductor on one end only)
INT2: ground to pin 1 & pin NN on both ends (ground is achieved to first and last conductor on both ends)
Consult our catalogue pages 20 to 23.
