Panasonic Corporation announced that it will launch full-scale mass production of a “Board to FPC Connector” in July 2019, which allows the use of fewer components and fewer assembly person-hours for vehicles, as well as making room for improved design of automotive LED lights, etc. Due to the increasing use of daylight running lamps following changes in the law governing automotive LED lights in Europe and Japan in recent years and improved designs for vehicle compartment instrument panels, etc., demand for automotive FPCs is expected to grow, accompanied by greater use in cable connection applications such as BMSs. Panasonic has designed and commercialized a connector with a unique structure that allows direct connection between the automotive FPC and the board. This connector eliminates the need for wire harnesses previously needed for connection, allowing the use of fewer components and fewer assembly person-hours, as well as enabling vehicle weight reduction and therefore lower fuel consumption.

Panasonic’s new Board to FPC Connector has the following features:

Panasonic’s unique metal terminal connection structure, which allows direct connection between the FPC and the board, eliminates the need for relay harnesses, allowing the use of fewer components and assembly person-hours.

The connector’s double-clip contact structure achieves excellent resistance to vibration, making it compatible with automotive applications such as LED lights and BMSs.

The connector’s inertial lock structure prevents incomplete engagement, achieving high reliability.
