IDC Flat Ribbon Cable Connector

The IDC flat ribbon cable connector system provides a modular approach to electronic inter-connection.  


IDC flat ribbon group

Insulation displacement contacts (IDCs) allow a ribbon cable to be forced onto sharp tines on the back of the contacts; this action pierces the insulation of all the wires simultaneously. This is a very quick means of assembly whether done by hand or automatically.The modular design of headers, sockets, etc. offers a very reliable mass termination and cost effective approach to interconnecting PCBs, or wire-to-board, separable header/socket or dual-in-line applications.

Outstanding features of this ribbon cable connector are high contact reliability, long life and low contact resistance.

Due to its flexibility ribbon cable is used where there is limited space to connect components together. Ribbon cables are usually seen for internal peripherals in computers, such as hard drives, CD drives and floppy drives as well as in printers, laptops and other electronic devices. Miniaturised versions of ribbon cable, referred to as flexible flat cable or FFC, are a common component in laptops, mobile phones and other consumer electronics products. IDC termination systems are also found in military and industrial equipment, the automotive industry and aviation.
