Floating Board to Board Connectors

Development Background

In recent years, electric components used in automotive applications have increased. In addition, components for automotive applications require higher reliability and durability to operate smoothly under severe conditions, such as vehicle vibration and extreme temperature changes.

Similarly, connectors are required to have higher contact reliability under vibration and high heat resistance in engine room peripherals.

To solve these issues, Kyocera developed a connector suitable for the automotive market, where higher contact reliability is required.


Floating Mechanism

Floating structure enables the use of multiple connectors on the same board.
Automatic assembly by robotics is also possible.


High Heat Resistance

Heat resistant up to 125℃.


Various Mating Heights and Number of Positions are Available

Connector’s mating height and number of positions can be selected according to customer specifications.   Product Search Page

One-Action Lock FPC/FFC Connectors

Development Background

In recent years, robotic automation processes have advanced at manufacturing sites. However, conventional FPC/FFC connectors require manual locking operation after FPC/FFC insertion by workers.

To improve workability, Kyocera developed a one-action lock FPC/FFC Connector (6817 Series) that supports robotic process automation with a unique locking structure that automatically locks in a single operation.


One-Action Lock Structure Enables One-Handed Operation During Maintenance.

One-handed insertion and removal are possible with a unique locking mechanism that can be locked automatically when the FPC/FFC is inserted. In addition, the lock release state is maintained with the actuator open, enabling easy operation during maintenance work.

Improper mating conditions can be detected automatically with the Automated Optical Inspection (AOI).

Robotic automatic assembly is also possible.


Two Types Available

Kyocera has developed two connector types, a vertical type that mounts perpendicular to the circuit board and a right-angle type that mounts parallel to the board.

For details on each operation, watch the demo video below.

(Left) Vertical-Type
(Right) Right-Angle-Type


Supports High-Speed Transmission

Connectors are designed with impedance control and are capable of high-speed transmission up to 10Gbps.
