New JAE FI-XP series for DisplayPort/LVDS interfaces withstand harsh use in consumer and professional equipment

JAE has introduced the FI-XP connector series for low-profile display interfaces including LVDS and DisplayPort, combining low overall height with enhanced strength to support robust connections to the latest thin LCDs. The insulator and metal shell are optimised for high resilience against pulling and lifting of the cable, to withstand rough handling by equipment installers or end users. A mechanical lock also prevents un-mating due to shock and vibration.
The FI-XP bottom-mount board receptacle has 30 positions, 1.0mm pitch, and a low mounted height of 1.0mm suitable for ultra-low-profile displays. The cable receptacle’s total height of 1.55mm also contributes to a slim-line interconnect, allowing equipment designers to eliminate bulky interconnections between computing devices and emerging flat-panel monitors. The connectors can be used with AWG#14 and AWG#42 coaxial cable, or AWG #32 and AWG#36 discrete wire.

The connectors are lead-free and RoHS-compatible, with signal terminations featuring a nickel barrier for long-term solder joint reliability. The operating temperature range of –40°C to +85°C allows use in a wide range of consumer and professional environments.

The PCB footprint for the FI-XP receptacle is the same as JAE’s current FI-X connector. In addition, compatibility with the FI-X cable plug eases adoption of the tougher FI-XP connectors in existing product designs. The FI-XP has 150% greater lifting endurance than the FI-X series.
