Good evening,

I'm looking for a connector that can house 14-pin connector display. Problem is that it has some extra space on the side which would not fit into regular connector.

Does anyone knows of the model of this specific connector ?

See images below for the display schematic and image.

Thank you.

Usually, these type are soldered to pcb directly.Standart FPC/FFC do not have Vias on the gold fingers.

These are soldered directly to a matching footprint on the pcb.

You have the following options:

  • Ask Manufacturer for mating connector
  • Try to cut the pcb to match a standart connector
  • Buy a standart 14-pin cable assembly and solder it on the pcb, then insert the cable in a standart connector.

  • \$\begingroup\$ This depends. For "emergency solution" i would do it. Otherwise i would either look for another display ore use the cable adapter i described \$\endgroup\$
