FFC / FPC test fixture solutions

FTFs are test fixtures which are dedicated for testing flex-based components and assemblies such as displays, touch panels and more. A weak spot in a typical functional test system is the method to connect DUT flexible cable to a circuit board where the simple method of attaching the flex directly with an ZIF or LIF connector fails.

Do you need to test a DUT with flex? Connect our experts for more details. 

OEM flat flexible cable connectors are not designed to withstand extended cycles, they are hard to operate and break quickly. Replacement is difficult because they are surface-mounted components.

FFC / FPC Testing

Z-Axis FTFs are used to connect flex circuits for device testing, test sockets & testing printed circuit boards (PCBs). By using the Z-Axis Testing Elastomeric Connectors, the connection to an FFC or FPC becomes easy, reliable and long lasting for thousands of test cycles.

Standard and customized flex test fixtures. We will fit a test fixture to match your DUT flex tail fast and with a reasonable price.

Functional In-Circuit Test Fixture

  • Outgoing termination options: FFC or PCB with thru holes for soldering wires.
  • Note: If the DUT Flex has wings (locking tabs), larger style fixture might be required.

Please call +972-54-6227975 or write us at with your requirements.

Test Fixture Include:

  1. 3D print hard shell
  2. Uses Z-Axis Elastomeric connector - soft between DUT and tester
  3. Special Flex inserts
  4. Flex cable (upon request)

Basic FTF Operation

  1. Fixture plugs directly into your test electronics
  2. Your device-under test easily inserts into your fixture
  3. Your test sequence is executed as if the DUT is plugged directly into your ZIF or LIF
  4. Test sequence executes reliably. No damage to your ZIF or LIF connector or DUT flex
  5. Repeats thousands of times
