Connector is an electronic component connecting two electrical or optical devices, which is used to transmit current or signal. The connector is widely used and bridges the circuit or other components in various forms. FPC connector and BTB connector both have the function of transmitting signal. What are the differences between the two connectors?
BTB connector is also known as board to board connector. BTB connector is used to connect PCB, module, motherboard, printed circuit board and flex circuit board
. It is a common connector product in the electronic market. Because BTB connector performs well in transmission, so it can be used to connect PCB and FPC BTB connector is widely used in almost all scenarios requiring transmission and interaction of electrical signals and optical signals. BTB connectors are mainly used in power system, communication network, financial manufacturing, industrial automation, medical equipment, office equipment, intelligent home appliances, military manufacturing and other industries.
With the development of BTB connector, the market trend is light and thin, small spacing and high performance. BTB connector usually adopts narrow contact mode, which is characterized by male and female base pairing. BTB connector mainly has three basic properties, namely electrical performance, mechanical performance and environmental performance.
FPC connector, also known as flexible PCB
, is made of foldable and bending materials. It is mainly used for the connection between LCD display screen and driving circuit PCB. Its characteristics are high cable density, light volume, high transmission speed and folding and bending. FPC connector is mainly developed with high density and small spacing, and is widely used in various fields, such as electronic equipment and mobile equipment Equipment, printing equipment, navigation equipment, medical equipment and other aspects have an important role.
FPC connector consists of four parts, namely rubber core, tongue, terminal and welding piece. The functions of these four parts are different: rubber core: protecting terminal, insulation, conducting during connection, providing mechanism strength, etc
Tongue: crimp the flat wire, insulate, guide the connection, provide the strength of mechanism, etc
Terminal: conductor transmission of electronic signal
Welding piece: component positioning, fixing, increasing strength, etc
