Hirose Electric (Simi Valley, CA) has introduced the BM10 series of flexible printed circuits (FPCs)-to-board connectors that are RoHS-compliant and halogen-free. They are available with stacking heights of 0.6 to 0.8 mm, and feature a 2.98-mm depth and 0.44-mm contact pitch. The 40-position connectors feature an enhanced self-alignment mechanism via guidance ribs, with a self-alignment range of 0.3 mm. Metal fittings and a clipping contact design provide high PC board retention force and a highly reliable contact, while dimpled contacts enable mating in high shock environments. They also feature solder wicking prevention and contact protection against dust and other particles.
