What are FPC and FFC?

ANSWER

■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 conductive foil.

■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.
