Z-Axis Flex Circuit Test Fixtures
Z-Axis Flex Circuit Test Fixtures are used to connect flex circuits to test equipment. A weak spot in a typical functional test system is where a DUT Flex connects to a circuit board. An obvious method – attaching the flex directly with an FFC or FPC connector – fails. OEM connectors are not designed to withstand extended cycles and break down quickly. When they do, replacement is difficult because they are surface mount components and require a labor-intensive re-work process. Using the Z-Axis Elastomeric Connector Interposer, the connection to the OEM FFC connector becomes permanent and is thereby saved from over-use.
