A Mass-Terminated Conductor for Flat Conductor, Flat Flexible Cable and Circuitry 820065
The use of flat conductor, flat flexible cable and circuitry has increased steadily within the electronics industry. This is because of the electrical and mechanical advantages offered by flat conductor cable and circuitry, particularly with respect to mechanical durability over millions of flexure cycles.
In order to integrate flat conductor cables economically into electronic equipment made in high volume, a termination technique which is both rapid and reliable is required. Berg Electronics has developed the Clincher™ connector to meet this need. The Clincher™ connector offers low applied cost (by using a mass termination technique) as well as the high reliability required in today’s electronic hardware market.
The following presentation describes the Berg Electronics Clincher™ interconnect system for flat conductor, flat flexible cable and circuitry, and how it can be used most effectively to minimize applied cost.
