HIROSE BK22 Series miniature hybrid flexible printed circuit (FPC) to board connector family to simplify mating and provide design flexibility. Combing space savings and a high-power capacity, connector enables OEMs to reduce the size of portable devices without sacrificing power performance. Devices deliver minimized contact resistance that facilitates power savings and allows up to 100W of power to be delivered via USB for fast charging. With two mounting points per contact, connector design shortens the length of electricity flow to minimize heat generation when a high current is used. The board mounting design suppresses heat generation to 30°C or less, even when 15A is applied.
