4. High density FPC-to-board/board-to-board connectors

Hirose has designed an innovative FPC-to-board/board-to-board connector series that offers high density mounting and space-savings. Supporting USB4 Gen2 (10Gbps) transmission for a wide range of portable electronic and consumer devices, the DF40 Series combines a 0.4mm pitch with a mounting depth of only 3.68mm.

The robust DF40 Series connector features a superior stamped contact design with a clear tactile click that confirms secure mating. The stamped contacts enable a longer effective mating length of 0.45mm that provides shock and vibration resistance common to portable device applications. Further protecting signal contacts, the DF40 Series has curved contacts to prevent buckling during mating.
