SMD Component Placement on Flat Flexible Cable

Nicomatic Flat Flex Cables are made with tin plate over copper conductors which make it ideal for direct soldering of components to these conductors. Our FFC are offered from 0.5mm through 2.54mmm pitch, in conductor counts, lengths and end preparations to your choosing. Exposing the conductors is a standard process and can be set to the location of your choice. We have successfully used automated pick and placement of components onto these cables or hand solder for a variety of designs.


Typical applications:
- ZIF or LIF cable extensions soldering a right angle SMD connector to FFC provides a unique cable extender

- Video Display Cables are built with Hirose DF9 connector, soldered and molded to 0.5mm pitch laminated flat flexible cable and is typically used in applications for board to flat panel display interconnects. This cable utilizes Nicomatics ability to apply the DF9 connector to a laminated flat flexible cable and overmold a housing to provide a low profile, sealed and durable connector

- Nicomatic Crimpflex FFC LED Light Tape for decorative and safety lighting. Combining Nicomatic capabilities of manufacturing Flat Flexible Cable, Crimpflex Connectors, UltraThin SMD LEDs along with placement ability, these light tapes may be used alone or connected to one another, making it easy to configure lighting solutions for channel and reverse-channel letters, signs, displays, under-the-counter and architectural applications

As an innovative leader in the production of laminated flat flexible cables (FFC), Nicomatic brings years of expertise and experience to a wide range of uses. Laminated FFC provides low cost, lightweight and a reliable solution in applications for automotive, telecommunications, medical, consumer electronics and other industry sectors.
