A variety of molded and machined PLCC plugs, designed to provide a connection between your flexible printed circuit board and your PLCC production socket
PLCC Plugs for Enhanced PCB Interconnections PLCC plugs are necessities in printed circuit boards. They are at the heart of the integrated circuit, creating mechanical and electrical communications between the circuit board and the device in which it is installed.
Every component of the PLCC plug, including the clips and socket plugs, has to be carefully manufactured for proper integration into the PCB design. A-Flex utilizes exemplary design and manufacturing techniques to produce high performance PLCC plugs for PCB integrated circuits.
At A-Flex, we have the capabilities to design PLCC plugs for surface mount, through hole, or socket designs. Our manufacturing facility enables us to produce PLCC production sockets as well as double ended plugs.
PLCC Plug Manufacturing Process When there is a requirement for PLCC plugs, the following aspects are taken into consideration:
It has to be surface mountable
It should reduce stress on the socket
There should be retention force
It should be durable
A-Flex has the capabilities to meet all these requirements and more. High grade materials are sourced for the manufacturing process. Generally, we use FR4 as our plug material. We utilize gold flash plated brass, for the PLCC pin design. Plated brass contacts are used to create definite connections. We manufacture our plugs with a total height of 0.400?.
Our PCBs are also tested using Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) and Automated X-ray Inspection (AXI) equipment to ensure that they provide the requisite speed and efficiency in an application.
A-Flex PLCC Plug Specifications A-Flex offers the following types of PLCC plugs:
A-Flex also receives a number of custom PLCC plug requirements from our industrial clients.
Benefits of PLCC Plugs Intricate designs of PLCC plugs can provide many benefits to PCBs and their industrial applications:
The size of the components can be small, allowing for easier integration
Many electric connections can be made owing to the high density of the plug
SMT and Socket Technology provides faster assembly
It helps reduce costs in terms of materials and production
It provides better performance in high vibration applications
A-Flex PLCC plugs are used in a variety of industries including defense, military, automotive, electronics, and telecom.
