Apologies in advance that the question is a bit of "does this exist" - but I really cannot remember whether I've actually seen a prototype for something like this; or I've seen an ad for an actual product - or maybe my mind combined images of unrelated ads.
Anyways: I would like to interface with copper pin pads on a PCB that match a, say, 2x5 2.54 mm pin header (basically circular pads, except for the one marking "pin 1", which is typically a square). Typically, the pads have holes, and then male or female pin headers can be inserted in the holes - and that is how I usually interface with them; however this also requires some force when attaching/reattaching. Say, something like this (from here) - just without the holes:
So, I was wondering if there was something like a flexible flat cable, with matching exposed pads, and an adhesive - so you can basically just "stick" the exposed pads of the flexible flat cable, on the copper pin pads of the rigid PCB? And then you could just "unstick" once you're done - and "stick" again once you need to interface?
I guess that would look something like this (taken from here; not sure what this product is supposed to do, though):
The below image is for something completely different (it's from here), but I've edited it, as it shows how I imagine this flexible adhesive connector would be "sticked" on a PCB:
The other end of the connector would presumably be just a normal FFC cable, e.g. like this (taken from here) - except with 10 pins, if the "sticky" end is supposed to interface with a 2x5 pin header pads:
Is there an actual product like this out there, that can be bought (that is, not just a prototype in a lab somewhere)?
Btw, I am aware there are adhesive flat cables for loudspeakers, like Ghost Wire 2.0, Super Flat Adhesive Wire:
... which is a similar concept - however, obviously, these dimensions would not be appropriate for interfacing with a 2x5 2.54mm pads for a pin header.
