Developed for connecting in-vehicle LED lamp modules to control boards, Panasonic Corp.’s (Osaka, Japan) connectors improve designing in-vehicle LED lighting. The “board-to-FPC connector" is the first of its kind in the industry, claims the company, that is suitable for cable connection to daytime running lights. According to Panasonic, this connector has a metal terminal connection structure that eliminates the need for FPC contacts for the first time in the industry, realizing direct connection between the LED-chip-mounted FPC and the control power board. The new "board-to-wire connector,” claimed by Panasonic to be the lowest-profile connector in the industry suitable for LED headlamp modules, has an in-house-developed terminal shape that gives the connector a height of only 3.4 mm (0.13 in). This low-profile connector exerts a minimal effect on the lighting angle of the LED, enabling smaller and low-profile LED lamp modules to be easily manufactured.
