Interconnect Device Simplifies Connection Of A PC Board To An LCD Panel

CAIN is a low-cost, high-density attachment device designed to interconnect a dual-row surface-mounted connector (Hirose DF9, Molex 1386, Conan 91901-31121, Elco 8375) to a flexible circuit. This system is commonly used for connecting a pc board to an LCD panel. Using patented connector technology, CAIN simplifies this connection and reduces final assembly costs by 28% to 36%.

This attachment device features the company's new connector alignment and compact compression system. This feature eliminates the cost of special circuit preparation prior to soldering. By using tapered ribs that separate and align each conductor, the system automatically engages the conductors of a flexible circuit and aligns each conductor to its contact. These ribs also act as a solder dam by eliminating potential solder bridging problems. CAIN incorporates a contact isolation system that supports and protects the individual contact. A cover-to-base locking system securely locks and strain-relieves the circuit. Lead-time is currently one week for components and seven weeks for the total CAIN system.
