Flexible Flat cable refers to wide range of electric cables both flat and flexible including solid conductors. The flexible type also known as flex circuits, a technology for assembling electronic circuits by mounting the devices on flexible plastic substrates like polyimide, Peek, or transparent conductive polyester film. However, the term Flexible Flat Cable FFC commonly alludes to enormously thin level link frequently utilized in high-thickness electronic machines like PC and PDAs.

These cables are intended to adapt to the tight bending radii and actual pressure related with moving applications, for example, inside cable transporters. Flat cables are ribbon cables composed of multiple conducting wires connected side-by-side. The construction of cables resembles to ribbon like shape which where the names comes from. The ribbon cable run parallel to one another on a same flat pane. These links normally comprise of flat and adaptable plastic film base alongside different flat metallic channels. Usually, the both the ends of cables are toughened with a stiffener. The stiffener holds the cables tightly and makes them thicker. Usually these cables are used in place of round cables for easy cable management as they consume very small space proposing better EMI/FRI suppression. Additionally, these wires are lighter in weight and of greater flexibility unlike rounded wires as they are individually secured and not wrapped.

Specification of these cables include

  • Pitch usually refers to distance from one centre of the cable to the other end, a single pitch can have different pitches between different conductors on the same cable. For instance, the FFC are available in many pitches like .500mm, 0.625mm, 0.800mm and many more. Customised pitches are also available on request.
  • Type based on form the FFC is described as Type 1 by Würth Elektronik and Type A by Molex, the cables are uncovered from same side of both the ends while other type labelled as Type 2 and Type D have exposed contacts on opposite sides of the cable.
  • Exposure length is the length of electrical contact that has been exposed at the end of cable.
  • Stiffener most FFCs have a type of additional material appended on the opposite side of the uncovered length of the link to work with ZIF or LIF associations.
  • Conductor size is the width and the thickness of conductors.

The FFC's are presently being comprehensively used in assortment of printer association among head and the motherboard, plotters, scanners sound systems, LCD machines, etc. These cables are also used widely electronic products such as digital cameras, audio equipment, flat screen, TV’s office equipment’s, etc.
