The FH19 series of PCB connectors from Hirose Electric Co. Ltd has a 0.9mm profile and a pitch of 0.5mm, addressing the need for a low-profile connector that closely matches the height of other components found on the PCB.

The FH19 accepts 0.2mm FPCs, while another model, the FH19S, accepts 0.3mm. Both have a depth of 3mm and allow PCB tracks to be routed under them. Also included are PCB retention clips within the insulator that can also act as a form of FPC guide to reduce misinsertion.


The connectors have a ZIF contact design that uses the tip of each contact to form a hinge point for the actuator. This design also maintains even contact normal force across all contacts as well as a self-closing function when the cover rotates below 300, producing a tactile click.

The series is available in 4, 9, 12, 13, 17, 20, 24, 26, 27, and 30 positions, and is rated at 50Vac, 0.5A.
