How to Distinguish FFC Connector and FPC Connector

In the field of connectors, FFC connectors and FPC connectors are often confused. Although both are flexible cable connectors, there is a certain degree of difference between FFC connectors and FPC connectors.

Flexible flatcable connector, FPC is a flexible print circuit. In terms of the manufacturing of the two, the way their lines are formed is different.

FPC is a flexible circuit board with different single-sided, double-sided and multilayer structures after FCCL (flexible copper clad foil) is processed by chemical etching. In FFC, a flat copper foil is sandwiched between the upper and lower insulation foil films.

The FFC connector is a new type of data cable made of PET insulation material and extremely thin tinned flat copper wire, which is laminated through the production line of high-tech automated equipment. It has soft, free bending and folding, thin thickness, small size, and connection Simple, easy to disassemble, easy to solve electromagnetic shielding (EMI).

Strictly speaking, FFC is naturally much cheaper. Considering the production cost, more companies prefer to use FFC related designs.
