Hirose Expands High-Speed Automotive FPC/FFC Connector Offering

December 27, 2021

Hirose has enhanced its automotive flexible printed circuit (FPC) / flat flexible connector (FFC) connector portfolio with the introduction of the FH75 Series. Supporting MIPI D-PHY  specifications, the FH75 Series delivers high-speed data transmission up to 1.5 Gbps in a miniature footprint. The compact FH75 Series has a 0.5 mm pitch and a height of only 2 mm to provide valuable space-savings.

Offering high contact reliability in severe environments, the FH75 Series utilizes a two-point contact design with two independent springs that provide a wiping action to prevent contact failure from dust, dirt and other contaminants. With an operating temperature of up to 125 degrees C, the FH75 Series satisfies extensive heat demands found in automotive applications. The FH75 Series FPC connector meets additional automotive requirements including resistance to shock and vibration, hydrogen and sulfur gasses, humidity and corrosion.

The connector utilizes a flip lock with FPC tab and housing side catches that offer a high retention force of 51.4N. The simple flip lock design delivers easy FPC insertion and emits a clear tactile click to confirm complete locking.  The FPC connector has a user-friendly design, which includes wide tapers that provide smooth FPC insertion.

“The FH75 Series meets rugged automotive mechanical requirements, including high temperature operation and a high-retention force for improved reliability in demanding applications,” said Mark Kojak, VP of Sales and Marketing for Hirose Electric USA.

The FH75 Series is commonly used in car navigation, laser radar, millimeter-wave radar, drive recorder, audio display and in-vehicle camera systems.

`The FH75 Series is available in a 40-position version that is halogen-free and RoHS compliant.


  • Independent two-point spring contact design reduces contact failure due to dust intrusion.
  • 125ºC heat resistance to satisfy severe automotive requirements
  • High FPC retention force with FPC tab and housing side catches
  • PCB and FPC/FFC compatible with FH52E/K/T
