Hirose has an established reputation in the industry for manufacturing high quality, innovative connectors. Recognising the rapid and changing technological developments in the field of electronics, Hirose have introduced the FH43B series to meet with the demand for miniaturisation.
The FH43B series has been designed with space saving in mind. The short mounting depth is a mere 2.75mm and has a low profile height of only 0.9mm allowing maximum space to be utilised on the PCB. The connector is lightweight and is easy to mount on to the PCB with double sided contacts. The fully enclosed molded housing structure conceals the exposure of contacts on the bottom face of the connector allowing conductive traces to run underneath the connector. Solder wicking is prevented by the application of a nickel barrier on the contacts to prevent the travel of solder into the
mating contact area.
The insertion of the FPC is user friendly due to the presence of innovative side-catches present in the internal structure of the connector to locate and hold a tabbed FPC in place which provides a temporary holding facility to allow accurate guided positioning. Furthermore, this increases the retention force of the FPC to the connector providing an overall stable and reliable connection. A firm and clear tactile click confirms that correct locking of the FPC into the connector has been completed.
The unique shape of the contacts fully support the actuator axle during rotation due to the tip of each contact
hooking down onto the actuator from above. Metal fittings are provided on each side of the connector to support the actuator from below making it even more secure and exceptionally reliable.
Ideal applications are LCD displays, digital cameras, PDA’s, POS terminals and many other small
