Molex Intros 2 New Jumper Versions
Flex jumper/connector.
Lisle, IL — Molex Incorporated has added two new products to its Premo-Flex line of flat flex cable (FFC) and etched polyimide jumpers. Both products provide ultra-flexible, durable PCB connections for a variety of applications including medical devices, consumer electronics and automotive electronics.

"As electronic devices continue to shrink in size, we are committed to designing complex, microminiature products that maximize board space while providing the ultimate in flexibility, reliability and cost savings," said Dan Kreger, product manager, Molex. "Premo-Flex products from Molex not only solve complex board-to-board interconnection challenges in confined spaces, but because they are off-the-shelf they help designers reduce lead times and avoid custom tooling costs."

The ultra-thin, ultra-flexible 0.12mm jumper cable has been added to a product line that is available in 0.50, 1.00 and 1.25mm pitch; multiple circuit sizes, from 4 to 60; and standard cable lengths, from 30 to 305mm, providing designers with virtually limitless options. The company can also accommodate custom requirements for FFC cable jumpers in lengths of over 305mm. All of the FFC jumpers can be terminated to Zero Insertion Force (ZIF), non-ZIF or Low Insertion Force FFC connectors and are suitable for complex board-to-board interconnections in confined spaces.

The Premo-Flex polyimide jumpers have etched-copper circuitry, allowing designers to achieve the tight tolerances required for a reliable link to fine-pitch, 0.30mm and smaller microminiature connectors. By terminating with the company's 0.30mm pitch Easy-On and BackFlip FPC Connectors, the solution meets the needs of designers looking for a dual-contact ZIF connector that enables them to utilize the same PCB pattern on adjoining, parallel PCBs. It also maximizes board space and allows design flexibility for compact applications such as digital cameras and handheld medical equipment.
