IDC Connector Type for LCD?

Unread post by mxc4 » Tue Nov 13, 2018 6:32 am

Hi all,
The connector on the ribbon cable for the lcd screen has snapped and I need to replace it. I have purchased some IDC connectors from the local store but I can't seem to find the correct one in terms of pins and size of the pins. (The one there I bought were selected by the representative when I bought the cable and broken connectors to him but on arrival they have too many pins :( )

Is there a industry standard name for this connector? If so please let me know so I can order the correct one.

thanks

We call it "FPC connector, 12pin, 0.8mm pitch, Bottom-side-contact".
Refer the schematics.

This mechanical drawing must be helpful to find a compatible one.

Thanks @odroid. Sorry to ask a potentially stupid question but the connector I have has 15x2 pins and on the diagramme provided the front view seems to have 12 pin on the lcd as you point out but the other diagramme seems to show 18 pins? If I ask for 12 pins will I get a connector that is appropriate number of pins? I still got to learn to read schematic diagrammes properly :)

I explained the tiny 12pin connector for 2.4inch LCD module. Reference number is CON2 on the schematics.

CON6 has 30pin(15x2) male header connector which matches to 2mm pitch IDC flat cable.
We will update the schematics soon to fix the wrongly generated PDF fonts by tomorrow.
