The Neoconix FX-Beam™ products are semi-custom FPCs that provide a flexible, separable, electro-mechanical link between two printed circuit boards (PCBs). The product consists of an advanced flexible printed circuit (FPC) including an ultra-low profile 68-position X-Beam™ connector and stiffener integrated on each end and is secured to the PC with a simple, highly reliable screw-down fastening system.
The X-Beam™ is a compressive interconnect, eliminating the need for any mating SMT connectors on the PC Board. X-Beam™ connectors occupy minimal board space and offer a rare combination of outstanding reliability, signal integrity, and power delivery. While the connectors and FPC pad patterns are standardized, the FPC layout is custom-designed for each application, based on the particular signal, power, and length requirements of each application.
By combining the advanced FPC design with an extremely short electrical termination path, these assemblies can uniquely combine high speed signaling (>10Gbps) and significant power delivery (>10A). The FX-Beam jumpers can be designed for signal, power or signal+power applications.
