Thru-hole Flex Cable Application

  • Mezza-pede Connector Thru-hole Flex Cable ApplicationThe male terminals are supplied in a polyimide film carrier to facilitate handling (model DHA).
  • A stiffener with a recommended thickness of .020 inches (0.51mm) should be used between the terminal pins and the flex circuit. (Stiffener not supplied)
  • The recommended maximum hole in the stiffener is .018" diameter.
  • The flex circuit should have a minimum diameter plated through hole of .016". Standard practices for flex circuit thru-hole and annular rings should apply.
  • An FR-4 cover can be used to protect the top solder joints if required. (not supplied)

SMT Board to Board Application

  • Mezza-pede Connector SMT Board to Board ApplicationIn an SMT application, the SMT socket (DHS or DHSL) and header (DHA, DHAM, or DHAL) can be used on PC boards, rigid flex or flex circuits.
  • SMT pad size should meet IPC standards for surface mount components.
  • See lead dimension and foot size on applicable CAD drawing for reference.
