I am having this connector - FH40-30S-0.5SV. This is a vertical connector and I am requiring a connector with similar pitch and pin count but instead of vertical (straight), I want horizontal (90 degree). I have tried to search in the internet and other connector websites and digikey/mouser/arrow, but unable to find any such connector.

Can someone help me whether they have used the connector I am requiring or how to go about the search?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Maybe they don’t make it in that pin count. Can you use a different pin count (like 34, 36...) \$\endgroup\$ Mar 9, 2021 at 4:50
  • \$\begingroup\$ But, I'm requiring the same characteristics of the connector except the vertical parameter. How to go about that? \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Search for "0.5mm fpc side entry 40 pin". Then you have a choice of top or bottom contact (determines which way the cable flips.) Many vendors make these, not just Hirose. \$\endgroup\$ Mar 9, 2021 at 5:11

You can find this part on any parts distributer by searching fpc 40pin 0.5mm.

here is what I found from one manufacture: https://www.amphenol-icc.com/media/wysiwyg/files/documentation/datasheet/flex/flexconnectors_050mm.pdf

And make sure you are using 0.5mm cable because 1mm flex cable is very common as well.

If you have a similar part to what you want, suggest going to top electronics distributor websites for your country and search that part. Usually you can see under what category that part is in and find similar.

I think you just have to search enough parts and get a feel for how each site organizes things.

Attached is picture showing how I might sort parts. An example of searching for similar parts
