Yamaichi Electronics has expanded its existing HF507S high-speed series with a direct mating type. The new variant, the HF507S-xx-72, is based on a new design that simplifies the connection between the plug and the cable. Unlike the existing non-ZIF solution, which relies on engagement in the plug connector using an adapter assembled with FPC/FFC, in the direct mating type the high-speed FFC can be plugged directly together without additional materials. The FFC has a small punched-out gap on both sides in the plug area for this purpose. It is inserted into the connector and engages with its shape using a so-called "one-push lock" procedure. To remove the FFC, one simply presses a button located on the top of the connector. The dimensions of the FFC in the plug area correspond to those of systems already on the market.
