Z-Axis FTFs are used to connect flex circuits for device testing & testing printed circuit boards (PCBs).

FFC / FPC fixture solutions

A weak spot in a typical functional test system is where a DUT flex connects to a circuit board and the simple method of attaching the flex directly with an FFC or FPC connector fails.

OEM connectors are not designed to withstand extended cycles and break quickly. Replacement is difficult because they are surface-mounted components.

Using the Z-Axis Elastomeric Connectors Interposer, the connection to the OEM FFC connector becomes permanent.
