I would like to design custom FPC cables as extensions of my flex pcb that will connect to this connector of another PCB.
My question is about the Connector/Contact type. In the digikey page it mentions "Contacts, Top and Bottom" compared for example to this connector where it just says "Contacts, Top".
My questions are:
1) what is the difference between the two types?
2) In designing the FPC cable for the first connector according to the datasheet (see image below) do I assume that the contact between the FPC cable and the connector happens in the top side or the bottom side of the connector? The reason for the question is that it will determine if the FPC cable will be designed in the top or bottom layer of the flex pcb.
