Flat Flexible Cable Solutions

Wavelink L.L.C. manufactures the highest quality flat flexible cables in standard or custom configurations. All of the cables are constructed of RoHS compliant materials and are free of PBDE (Polybrominated diphenyl ethers). The patented integral stiffener offers the most reliable connection between connector and cable available. The experienced in-house tooling department makes Wavelink the right choice for custom cables requiring punching, creasing, folding or molding. Wavelink offers assembly services as well for your FFC cables with custom connectors, crimping, and more.

Wavelink Cable greatly expands our comprehensive in-house FFC custom cable capabilities to include in depth varieties of pitches and conductors as well as advanced FFC Shielding options.

Wavelink FFC can be made with 1 to 100+ conductors. The number of conductors and spacing can be customized. Groupings of wires can be placed at different spacings and terminated differently within the same cable. The standard spacings are as follows:

  • 0.5mm
  • 1.00mm
  • 1.25mm
  • 1.27mm
  • 2.54mm
  • & More

FFC can be shielded on one or both sides. Any combination of traces can be attached to the shield to isolate individuals or groups of conductors. Shielding is laminated to the outside of the cable and consists of 0.5mil thick PET outer layer, adhesive, 0.3mil thick aluminum foil, and 1 mil thermoform bonding adhesive.
