■FPC (Flexible Printed Circuit）
FPC is a flexible circuit
board made of a highly bendable and thin insulating material, such as polyimide,
that serves as a support.
It is constructed by forming
an adhesive layer on an insulator film and overlaying the adhesive layer with a
■FFC （Flexible Flat Cable）
FFC is a flat cable
constructed by sandwiching a row of conductors between an upper insulator film
and a lower insulator film.
Some FFCs have their contacts
formed by tin plating. Generally, FFC is less expensive than FPC.
